  • Predators' Craig Smith: Lower-body injury hurt playoff production

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/14/16) Smith said his lower-body ailment limited him for the majority of the playoffs.

    Smith averaged 15:17 of ice time in 11 playoff games -- including a 30:19 triple-overtime output against the Sharks in the conference semifinals -- but his performance left a lot to be desired. The 26-year-old had just two points in the playoffs and was held off the scoresheet altogether in the last nine contests. Despite the unfortunate end to his season, Smith can take solace in the fact that he exceeded the 20-goal mark for the third consecutive season -- he had 21 scores in 2015-16.

    Predators' Craig Smith: In Game 3 lineup

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Smith (lower body) will play in Game 3 on Tuesday against the Sharks.

    Smith was considered a game-time call for the evening's contest, but the fact that he dressed for Game 2 seemed to bode well for his chances despite the nagging issue. He will indeed dress again for Game 3 as the Predators look to avoid falling behind the dreaded 3-0 in the series. The Predators also made some lineup changes for the contest and, as a result, he will play alongside Mike Fisher and Colin Wilson on the second line.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Game-time decision for Game 3

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Smith is questionable for Tuesday's Game 3 against San Jose with a lower-body injury, Robby Stanley of NHL.com reports.

    Smith has been in and out of the lineup as he continues to battle this nagging ailment. Since being hurt, the winger has failed to tally a point, although he did fire seven shots on goal in Game 2. The 29-year-old's absence will certainly be felt in the locker room where his veteran presence could help the team dig out of their two-game deficit. If he does sit out, a potential replacement could be found in recently recalled Pontus Aberg.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Returning for Game 2

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/1/16) Smith (lower body) is in the lineup for Sunday's Game 2 against the Sharks, Brooks Bratten of the Predators reports.

    Smith has already missed three games during the playoffs, including Game 1 of Nashville's ongoing series against the Sharks. He'll likely step back in on the second line Sunday night.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Out for Game 1 with lingering lower-body injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/29/16) Smith is dealing with a lower-body injury and will not play in Friday's Game 1 against the Sharks, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Smith has been dealing with a lower-body injury throughout the playoffs and apparently won't be able to skate so soon after Nashville finished off the Ducks in Game 7 on just Wednesday. In his place, Pontus Aberg will make not only his playoff debut, but his NHL debut as well.

    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.
