"We hope Zack can come back for the Montreal game (Nov. 29) and if not that, then the game against the New York Islanders (Dec. 1)," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "That's the target date, with that type of injury. It's about how much pain he can sustain and once we feel he can help us, he’ll be back." Smith has been out of action since Nov. 10 . He has no goals and six assists in 12 games this season.

Zack Smith is still looking for his first goal of 2017-18.

"I think if anything, I'm just gripping the stick a little too tight," said Smith. "You know (the chances) are there, and it's going to come. I just need one to go in off my [back side], or my shin pad, or my elbow or something. It's usually a dirty or greasy goal to get you rolling." He has earned six assists and has 21 shots so far this year.

Zack Smith is on a three-game point streak.

Smith registered two assists on Saturday, bringing him up to four helpers over the course of his three-game run. It's a good showing, but keep in mind that the 29-year-old has never reached the 40-point milestone in a single season. Temper your expectations for 2017-18.

May 29 - 1:32 PM

Zack Smith will likely be tasked with trying to contain Penguins star Evgeni Malkin in Game 7.

Malkin had three assists in Game 5 and found the back of the net in Game 6. Smith took some of the blame for that Game 6 marker. "That was my mistake," said Smith. "As soon as I tried to strip him on the outside ... as soon as I did that I knew it was the wrong move. He’s probably their best player right now. He protects pucks so well, you just have to stay between him and the net at all times. You can’t (rush) the puck like I tried to do on that one." Smith will take that lesson into Game 7 Thursday night.
