It looks like Ryan Smyth will probably play on Saturday after being a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

"I'm a competitor so, absolutely, it's tough to take," Smyth said of being scratched. "It's in our nature to play hockey and not sit and watch, but that was the coach's decision. He felt it was best for the team at the time. We'll move forward." Smyth plans to play smarter after accumulating 18 PIM in his last two games.
