He now improves to 1-3-0 on the season with a 3.94 goals-against average and a .855 save percentage.
While the win was encouraging, he remains a struggling backup to a workhorse in Pekka Rinne, so his fantasy value is very limited.
Smith's goal was the 100th of his career, and it came on the power play after he unloaded a wicked wrister passed Crawford.
Smith now has two goals and three points this season in 10 games. The 25-year-old is a former first round pick, but he just hasn't produced since making the Predators roster.
Johansen's shots per game is at a career-low pace and that isn't nearly good enough for a top-line center being paid million per year.
He will look to get on the board Tuesday night versus Washington.
Saros has an 0-3-0 record with a 4.36 goals-against-average and a .817 save percentage this season.
This was Turris' first game as a member of the Nashville Predators, and it went pretty well.
His goal at the mark of the second period tied the game at one.
Saros is 0-3-0 on the year in three starts so far this season.
He sports an abysmal 4.36 goals-against average and a .817 save percentage.
