DeSmith allowed three goals on 15 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Predators in Game 2. The fourth goal was an empty-netter.

Thatcher Demko (undisclosed) was out of action, so it was DeSmith's turn in the crease for the Canucks. His first outing of the postseason was poor -- the Predators were opportunistic with their chances early on and successfully bunkered down in the third period to hold the lead. DeSmith was mediocre in the regular season with a 12-9-6 record, a 2.89 GAA and an .895 save percentage over 29 appearances. If Demko remains sidelined, DeSmith will likely need more help from the team in front of him in order to find success as the series shifts to Nashville for Game 3 on Friday and Game 4 on Sunday.
