Smith will not travel with the team for Tuesday's game (SP Times)

The AHL suspension doesn't carry in the NHL. It's not looked great upon, but really #1 and #2 are hurt.

Nothing has been released offically by the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mike Smith missed practice again - two straight. He is now on the injury report as day-to-day with an upper body injury.

Karri Ramo is still suspended in the AHL but is expected to travel with the team.

It sounds like Mike McKenna is going to sign an NHL contract.
