Predators' Craig Smith: Expected back Monday

Smtih (undisclosed) is expected to suit up for Monday's clash with Arizona.

Smith missed Saturday's outing -- also against the Yotes -- with this undisclosed ailment but appears to be ready to return. Fellow winger P.A. Parenteau figures to be a healthy scratch assuming Smith remains on track to play during pregame warmups. The 27-year-old has been on quite the skid of late, as he has failed to register a goal in his last 21 contests and has garnered a paltry two assists over that stretch. It seems the Madison, Wisconsin native's streak of three consecutive 30-plus point seasons is in serious jeopardy this year.
