Johansen has helped spark the playoff run of the Predators, who are one victory shy of Nashville's first trip to the Stanley Cup finals. Gibson finished 21-7-4 with a 2.50 goals-against average and ripped off a 9-0-1 stretch late in the season that started with a 4-3 shootout win over visiting Nashville on March 7, but he has been limited to three relief appearances in the postseason. Pekka Rinne had one of his best games in the postseason, stopping 32 shots. Wilson and Watson's goals were the second each have scored this postseason, Aberg's was his first. John Gibson stopped all 10 shots he faced for Anaheim, but had to leave the game with an injury and he is questionable to play today.
Ryan Getzlaf - The Ducks' captain managed to avoid a suspension and then generated 11 shot attempts (6 SOG), but came up empty on the scoresheet and was on the wrong side of the ledger (15 for, 16 against, 48.4 CF%) when it came to shot differentials.
Both teams were missing significant players due to injuries.
Based on how physical Game 5 was, the Predators and Ducks were lucky they didnt lose any more players.
In a tight matchup, it's the goalies who often make the difference. As long as Rinne is one his game, Nashville should win. "But it needs to be other guys that step up".
With Fisher and Johansen pushed to the sidelines, Aberg got the promotion he deserved when he was moved onto a line with Forsberg, and he made sure Laviolette got rewarded for his decision.
"Peter is such a great motivator", Fiddler said.

We get it. These are the playoffs.
Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has been fined for apparently using a homophobic slur during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. The team either has to win on Monday or there will not be a Game 7 in Anaheim.
"I had no idea it happened", Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. The place is going to be rocking, and you have to expect Nashville to find a way.
"For us, obviously our season's on the line", said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano. Even the significant trade acquisitions - such as Nashville's P.K. Subban, James Neal, Filip Forsberg and Ryan Johansen, as well as Anaheim'sJakob Silfverberg - were obtained in exchange for homegrown products.
With 40.3 seconds remaining in the second period, the Predators tied the game on a power play goal from Colin Wilson. Wagner followed the play to the net to convert the rebound.
The Preds might get Craig Smith back into the lineup tonight, reports suggest. Johansen sustained a season-ending thigh injury in Game 4 that required surgery with an expected recovery time of two to three months. Fisher took a hit to the head in Game 4.
Because his shot was not landing, Smart tried to get to the paint. "We should be a lot better in Game 5". Thomas was largely ineffective in those two games with just 19 combined points and 16 total assists.
The late-night maneuver brings the wider bill back for now but it's on a bill by a Democrat who won't accept the changes. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York , center, flanked by Sen. "We can do this a different way", Weber said.
Following Monday night's game, however, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said Crosby had not been evaluated for a concussion. The Canadian star was also sent crashing into the boards during a Penguins power play. "We just kept going".
And I hate to keep agreeing with Harper , but he was right on point with what he said after the game on Monday. Goodness knows in my 12-year college umpiring career I was at three games where punches were actually thrown.
The Cavaliers dropped to 10-1 in the post-season with their first loss since game four of last year's finals against Golden State. In addition to G Marcus Smart , F Amir Johnson also rejoined the Boston lineup after being replaced by Gerald Green in Game 2.
The question will become: Is he more likely to leave if the Warriors win or if they lose? Chalk that up to all the blowouts. He finished at the basket easily , drilled pull-up jumpers and stretched his range out beyond the 3-point line.
The disallowed goal started a nightmare first period for the Predators that proved costly in the close affair. Nashville coach Peter Laviolette's system counts on his defensemen to jump up in the play and contribute.
The Cavaliers have the kind of shooters that if they get hot, even contesting them well will not make a difference. And Irving averaged 25.8 points per game, cranking up his scoring when he was needed at the end of the series .
