Goalie Jeremy Smith was recalled from Milwaukee today by the Nashville Predators as a precautionary measure after back-up goalie Anders Lindback received an injury in the final game of the season in Colorado.

The injury occurred early in the final period when several players fell on Lindback in a scramble around around the net. Predators' coach Barry Trotz termed the injury "minor" and said that he expected Lindback to back-up starter Pekka Rinne in the opening game of the playoffs against Detroit on Wednesday night at Bridgestone Arena..
