Watch: Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Mike Smith after preseason debut

Mike Smith stopped 29 shots in his preseason debut after missing the first four games with a fractured tip on his right ring finger.
You’ll have to pardon Smith’s comment about Steven Stamkos not scoring a goal as Stamkos stood over my left shoulder trying his best to distract Smith as he was talking with the camera focused on him. Ryan Malone later joined in on the attempted distraction, but to no avail.
