Predators' Craig Smith: Out again Thursday

Smith (undisclosed) did not take part in pregame warmups and thus will not play Thursday's Game 4 against the Ducks.

Smith has now missed 10 of the last 11 contests with his mystery ailment, but it appears that he could finally be nearing a return, as he was able to participate in Thursday's morning skate. With Harry Zolnierczyk likely serving as a healthy scratch for Game 4, P.A. Parenteau is slated to draw into the lineup.
