The Road to the Stanley Cup Began in Milwaukee

Nashville’s home-grown talent carries them into first Stanley Cup Finals With their backs against the wall having lost star center Ryan Johansen for the rest of the playoffs, and captain Mike Fisher for an undetermined period of time, the Nashville Predators reeled off two improbable wins against the Anaheim Ducks to reach the first Stanley Cup finals in franchise history. Of the 19 players that took the ice for the Preds in Monday night’s series-clinching win, 12 of them spent considerable time with the Milwaukee Admirals. Viktor Arvidsson, Miika Salomaki and Colton Sissons all...

The Predators called on the “next man” and he answered. The Predators went into Anaheim and stunned everyone with a 3-1 win, despite not having captain Mike Fisher and top line center Ryan Johansen. Well, they stunned everyone except for guys like Mattias Ekholm, of course. “I think it’s more media that thinks, like, ‘Oh sh**, here we go, this is never gonna work,’ we just know we have these guys down our depth chart that can just step up whenever,” Ekholm said after the game in an interview with NHL Network. “Guys are ready, guys are in game shape and ready to go when...

It's game 5, series tied. Tonight one team inches closer to the cup, while one inches closer to golf.

Ryan Johansen left game 4 and required emergency hip surgery which will cost him and the Preds the remainder of the playoffs. Johansen was one of the biggest offensive threats for the Predators, having...

Nashville Predators @ Anaheim Ducks Game 5 Preview

Not even sure what to expect tbh. Well, I had this whole thing pretty much written and then the news hit. During last night's game, Ryan Johansen suffered a left thigh injury and needed surgery. He is out for the rest of the playoffs— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) May 19, 2017 This is absolutely devastating for the Preds chances to advance in the playoffs. Even if he didn’t have the best game last night, Ryan Johansen is the most important offensive player on the team, outside of Filip Forsberg. This is as bad an injury as you could have had for this team. Gutting, really....
