Smith will be out for a while with a sprained knee, as revealed by Ruff on Wednesday
before the team's game against the Montreal Canadiens.
Part one went out, and part two is now back. "At least we get something back,
even though I don't like the trade," Ruff remarked.
Forward Timo Meier will be available for New Jersey's rematch with the Canadiens.

As we all know, injuries always lead to opportunities.
