Goaltender Logan Thompson returned last night.

Owen Krepps of Vegas Hockey Now: So Logan Thompson return but he wasn’t able to make it through the game, leaving the third period with a lower-body. Forward Reilly Smith left last night’s game in the second period with a lower-body injury.

Both players will be out on Saturday according to coach Bruce Cassidy.

“I don’t think either will be available Saturday. That is the initial diagnosis, but we will reconvene tomorrow and obviously Saturday on gameday. Right now we’re obviously concerned about Logan, he missed a lot of time. With Reilly, I think it was just the lower body that he couldn’t play through. Obviously, Logan missing that much time we will have to really look closely at that one.”
