Lightning G Mike Smith out
Smith was hurt during a morning practice before Monday night's game against Carolina. Dan Ellis replaces Smith, 10-5-0 with a 3.20 goals-against-average in 17 games this season.
A team spokesman says Smith's injury is considered minor and he is expected to be sidelined approximately two weeks.
Cedrick Desjardins, recalled from Norfolk of the AHL, is Ellis' backup.
