  • Predators' Craig Smith: Unable to suit up

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/22/17) Smith (undisclosed) was not in the lineup for Game 6 against Anaheim on Monday.

    The veteran forward participated in full at morning skate early in the day but wasn't able to play after subbing in on a few line rushes during pregame warmups. If the Predators emerge victorious in Game 6 and advance to the Stanley Cup Finals, the extra rest could be enough to get the 27-year-old back on the ice. If Anaheim prevails, it'll be interesting to see if Smith is able to return for Game 7 on Wednesday.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Could return Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/22/17) Smith (undisclosed) was a full participant at Monday's morning skate and could be available against Anaheim, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    Even if Smith is unable to give it a go for Game 6, practicing in full should be taken as a good sign that he is nearing a return and could be in action sooner rather than later. The Preds have been ravaged by injuries during the playoffs -- including Mike Fisher (undisclosed), Ryan Johansen (thigh) and Kevin Fiala (leg) -- so getting back the 27-year-old Smith would be a real shot in the arm for Nashville regardless of whether that happens Monday or in a potential Game 7.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Out for Game 5

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/17) Smith (undisclosed) was absent from warmups Saturday in Anaheim, Thomas Willis of NHL.com reports.

    Smith will now miss his 10th of the Preds' last 11 games. It was speculated he may draw into the lineup because of a hobbled offense in Nashville, but he'll continue to sit out. Smith's next opportunity to see ice time will be Monday at home.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Out again Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/20/17) Smith (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's Game 5 against the Ducks.

    Smith has missed almost the entire playoffs, and this entire series, so this isn't that surprising. With both Ryan Johansen and Mike Fisher out, the Predators have more pressing concerns than the continued absence of Smith.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Out again Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/18/17) 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.

    April 1, 2015: Predators D Roman Josi is unsung hero of special season in Nashville
    Roman Josi is overshadowed as part of the great story that is the Nashville Predators, but in terms of what he provides to the team versus what he is paid, he's one of the league's best bargains.
