Predators left surprised, determined by Johansen's injury

As many have already noted, the quality of hockey between the Nashville Predators and Anaheim Ducks as they exchange proverbial haymakers in their Western Conference Final has been top class.

Anaheim Ducks right wing Chris Wagner (21) scores against Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne during the second period of Game 5 in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Western Conference finals in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, May 20, .

The NHL announced the fine Saturday, shortly before Game 5 against the Nashville Predators.

The Predators played their first game without Johansen (13 points in 14 playoff games), who suffered a season-ending thigh injury in Game 4 on Thursday.

"Nashville" away out "Anaheim" and was one win away from the Stanley Cup finals. Following up on Filip Forsbergs rebound, Aberg got off a shot before diving over a fallen Anaheim defender.

Not much seems to wound these resilient Predators, who overcame the injury absence of top scorer Ryan Johansen and captain Mike Fisher.

In the second period, Anaheim continued to put pressure on the defense of "Nashville" and still achieved the result. "I hope I didn't offend anybody outside the circle that we trust". "We've seen Freddy a couple times". Things were going our way. A tip-in from Aberg gave Nashville the lead with 8:59 remaining.

Johansen, the fourth overall pick of the 2010 National Hockey League draft by Columbus, had 14 goals and 47 assists while playing in all 82 regular-season games.

We've just got to get back to, like I said, being physical, bringing the physicality and having a defensive mindset. He also had five turnovers. "He's human, so he's going to have a night like this", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue .


John Gibson - Anaheim's starting goaltender left Game Five with a lower-body injury, and was replaced by Jonathan Bernier.

Game... Set... Preds lead the series 3-2. Therefore it is possible for them to force a game seven, yet it will be hard.

It was Forsberg who's shot hit Bernier and kicked out to Aberg who drove to the net and made it 2-1. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said Gibson wants to play in Game 6, but will be re-evaluated. Smith, who hasn't played since May 7 against St. Louis, was on the ice taking drills and went to locker room early - usually a good indication of a player's availability. "After he was done with his speech, we did not do the pregame warmup, we were ready to play the game".

We get it. These are the playoffs. So we're confident in our group.”. "We don't have a choice but to win on Monday".

The Ducks took a 1-0 lead when they caught the Predators with their fourth line out against Ryan Kesler and Jakob Silfverberg.

In a game that nasty, dirty, gritty and intense, you can't say (at least with a straight face) that either team didn't show up. Fortunately for the Predators, they got all the secondary scoring they needed in Game 5 against the Ducks. He had registered only one assist in eight games this postseason and appeared in only 15 career regular-season games. He made 10 saves. Two key guys missed the last game but at the same time a lot of guys stepped up.

The Ducks style in the NHL Playoffs 2017, may be over since they lost game five at home.
