Brendan Smith will be out of action for about two weeks after injuring his shoulder against Columbus Saturday.
Smith will be seen by team doctors on Monday to further evaluate the shoulder injury. "That's a loss," coach Mike Babcock said of Smith's injury. "He's a competitive kid, he moves the puck and he competes awfully hard. We're already on fumes a little bit, and to lose him, we don't know for how long obviously, but it's a blow for us." Look for Ian White to return to the lineup and Brian Lashoff is also available to replace Smith.
