Predators left surprised, determined by Johansen's injury

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has been fined thousands of dollars for making an "inappropriate remark" during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.

John Gibson took to the ice Monday morning, giving the Ducks hope that they may have their goaltender available for Game 6 of the Western Conference finals against Nashville.

If these players don't play in game six the NHL Playoffs 207 may be over for the Anaheim Ducks. He led the Predators' AHL affiliate in goals per game this season, scoring 31 in 56 games for the Milwaukee Admirals, which was the fourth-highest total in the league.

And now the unassuming Swede has another new role for Nashville: He's the hero of the latest clutch victory in the Predators' increasingly irresistible Stanley Cup push. The Predators are now one win away from reaching the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history.

The Ducks' goal was scored by Chris Wagner. He had to be taken off the ice for medical evaluation immediately after his celebration. "But we have such depth and such experience and players that have paid their dues in the minors that it didn't happen". "I thought that's what we did". "We've seen Freddy a couple times". Rookie Pontus Aberg scored the game-winning goal.

Johansen leads the Predators with 13 points in 14 playoff games while centering their top line with Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson.

"I think we're very deep up front", Wilson said.

Less than seven minutes later, left winger Colin Wilson quieted them back down with a power play goal.

Jonathan Bernier took over for Gibson and stopped 16 shots in his first appearance in almost two weeks for the Ducks, calling it a "weird situation". And then the game started and the Ducks lost their starting goalie after the first period. We've got a job to do tonight.

Cogliano pointed to their Game 7 win and said "we're 100% confident that we can come in and win this game". "He had a really good go here in the playoffs, especially, and we're definitely going to miss him". The Ducks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 18.7 percent of their power play opportunities.

It was unclear exactly when Johansen suffered the injury, but he finished the game before further assessment of his condition led doctors to get involved. He recorded 48 points (25-23-48) in 66 regular-season games in the AHL during the 2016-17 campaign, and tallied four points (3-1-4) in three games for the Admirals during the 2017 Calder Cup Playoffs. Rickard Rakell missed Saturday's game with a lower-body injury, and forward Patrick Eaves has missed nine with his injury. The duo combined for 65 regular-season goals.

Johansen led the Predators with 13 points in 14 playoff games while centering their unsafe top line alongside Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson.

If Anaheim takes Game 6, both teams will fly back to California for game seven on Wednesday. In Game 3, they rallied from a 1-0 deficit to win 2-1.

Predators center Vernon Fiddler said Laviolette's pregame talk went a long way toward convincing the team that it had a chance to win the game without its top two centers.
