Stars' Craig Smith: Opens scoring in second period
Smith scored a goal on two shots, added two hits and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Golden Knights.
Smith had just one blocked shot in the season opener versus the Blues, but he was more productive in the second game of the year. The 34-year-old logged a team-low 10:10 of ice time Tuesday, and it appears he'll be firmly in a fourth-line role throughout the campaign. He's also playing on his off side at left wing, which could limit his effectiveness. Smith had 16 points in 64 outings between Boston and Washington last season.... See More ... See Less

Smith scored a goal on four shots in the Capitals' 5-1 loss to the Lightning on Thursday.
Smith shot a puck off Andrei Vasilevskiy to cut the Lightning's lead to 2-1. That would be the closest the Capitals would get to tying the game, however, as they coughed up three goals in the third to drop a 5-1 contest. This goal snaps an 11-game point drought for the former Bruin as he looks to get back on track offensively. On the season, Smith has seven goals and 13 points in 58 games.... See More ... See Less

Smith was acquired by Washington from Boston on Thursday along with a 2023 first-round pick, a 2025 second-round selection and a 2024 fourth-round pick in exchange for Dmitry Orlov and Garnet Hathaway.
Smith has four goals and 10 points in 42 contests while averaging 10:15 of ice time with Boston this season. A fresh start might do him some good, though the 33-year-old will likely serve in a bottom-six role with the Capitals just as he did in Boston.
