No practice for the Preds yesterday or today, we we won't know until pre-game on the status of Smith (or Rinne). Maz was called up from Milwaukee which fueled some speculation that Rinne was hurt. However, one would have to believe that Juuse Saros would've been the one getting the call if Rinne was truly hurt.

That said....
