Trevor Daley suffered a lower-body injury during Tuesday's contest.

Daley has five goals and 19 points in 54 contests in 2016-17. The severity of the injury wasn't immediately known. The Penguins were already missing defensemen Justin Schultz and Olli Maatta, so missing Daley for any period of time would put significant strain on Pittsburgh.

Michael Del Zotto knows that he might be dealt before the deadline.

"It happens every year," Del Zotto said. "It’s not like it’s the first time. I’ve been traded before. It is what it is. It’s a business. You realize that pretty early in your career. I understand where I’m at as far as my contract, being a UFA this summer. Same thing with taking each game one day at a time. You take each day one day at a time. Go home, make dinner, get ready for tomorrow and whatever happens, happens." Del Zotto has been traded before with his previous move coming in 2014 when the Rangers shipped him to Nashville, but that was a January move rather than a deadline trade. Philadelphia might still keep Del Zotto, especially seeing as the squad isn't out of the playoff race yet.

Zacha crashed head-first into the boards due to a check from Ottawa's Derick Brassard. Zacha left the game and the Devils didn't offer an update afterwards, other than to say he had an upper-body injury. He'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, so we might have more information in the near future. The rookie has eight goals and 16 points in 52 contests this season.

It was Larsson's 12th assist and 15th point in 59 contests this season. Although there was some potential for him to see his offensive presence grow with the transition from New Jersey to Edmonton, in the end it doesn't seem to have impacted him at all from that perspective.

Mike Smith isn't happy with the NHL's current concussion protocol.

An NHL spotter forced Smith to leave Monday's game in the third period after teammate Jakob Silfverberg collided into him. Smith passed the mandatory concussion testing, but in the meantime the game continued. "I think there’s a lot of flaws in the system, especially with the goalie position, and it needs to get fixed," Smith said. "What stops a fourth liner from going and bumping into a goalie? It’s just a two-minute penalty to get your starting goalie out? I don’t think it’s happened in a playoff game yet, but I’m sure it will." The counter to Smith's argument could be: What's to stop a fourth liner from running into the starting goaltender either way? The spotter system is meant to make sure players don't stay in a game after being concussed, but punishing players that target the head is handled separately. It's possible that the NHL will amend the system with regards to goaltenders, though such a change probably won't occur until the summer at the earliest.
