Smith has put up three points, 12 PIMs, and 46 hits through just 27 game this season.

But he did record 22 points, 111 PIMs, and 127 hits last season over all 82 games.

Zack Smith may be a healthy scratch again on Tuesday.

Smith appeared to be the odd man out during Monday's practice. He sat in the press box in Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay and he knows what to do once he gets back into the lineup. "It's self-explanatory," said Smith. "I need to play better, I have to be more physical and start contributing a little more."
