KEY GAME INFORMATION
NASHVILLE: LAST SEASON: 41-27-14, 96 points. Fourth in Central Division. Lost to San Jose Sharks in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Peter Laviolette (third season, 15th NHL season).
ADDED: D P.K. Subban, D Matt Carle and D Yannick Weber.
LOST: D Shea Weber, G Carter Hutton and D Barret Jackman.
PLAYER TO WATCH: Subban. The $9 million-per-year defenseman arrived June 29 in a trade that sent captain Shea Weber to Montreal. Subban is seen as an offensive upgrade. His speed and skill with the puck is a much better match for Laviolette's approach, giving the Predators a chance to score more points in the very competitive Central Division.
OUTLOOK: Stanley Cup Finals is a reasonable prediction. The Predators have made some big moves revamping this roster over the past two seasons with Subban easily the biggest yet. The Predators are banking on more offense helping them earn home-ice advantage after back-to-back seven-game series against California teams as the West's first wild card last spring.
ANAHEIM: LAST SEASON: 46-25-11, 103 points. Won Pacific Division. Lost to Nashville in first round.
COACH: Randy Carlyle (eighth season, 11th NHL season)
ADDED: C Antoine Vermette, RW Jared Boll, LW Mason Raymond, G Jonathan Bernier.
LOST: Coach Bruce Boudreau, G Frederik Andersen, LW David Perron, RW Chris Stewart, LW Jamie McGinn.
PLAYER TO WATCH: G John Gibson. After sharing the crease with Andersen or sitting in the minors for the past three years, the 23-year-old American is an unquestioned No. 1 NHL netminder for the first time. He has capably handled a heavy workload before, but the Ducks need him to match the unflappable (and much more expensive) Andersen's steady play over an entire season.
OUTLOOK: The four-time defending Pacific Division champions are trying to go backward to go forward. GM Bob Murray jettisoned the successful Boudreau and re-hired old friend Carlyle, who insists the game hasn't passed him by after getting fired in Anaheim and Toronto over the past half-decade. He'll attempt to coax new mental toughness out of essentially the same roster built around Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. The Ducks should be a Cup contender again, but that window could be getting smaller.
PREVIEW
Predators face adversity ahead of Game 5 vs. Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Nashville Predators' magic carpet ride through the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs encountered major turbulence when they announced Friday that Ryan Johansen will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a left thigh injury.

The injury to Johansen, the team's leading scorer, was sustained in Nashville's 3-2 overtime loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday which evened the Western Conference Final at two victories apiece. Johansen underwent surgery in Nashville on Friday and the Predators estimated his recovery time to be in the range of two to three months.

Johansen collected 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) through 14 games, registered a team-best 54.3 percent faceoff win percentage and his average ice time (20:45) was second only to linemate Filip Forsberg among Nashville forwards.

With captain Mike Fisher's status unknown for Game 5, the Predators could be down to their two top centers in an evenly played series.

The Predators rolled through the first two rounds with little adversity, so this injury news will be the first major test for them given their lack of productivity at center behind Johansen. Fisher has yet to score a point in the playoffs and third-line center Calle Jarnkrok has registered a goal and an assist in 13 games.

With the Ducks already holding a significant matchup advantage at center with captain Ryan Getzlaf, Ryan Kesler, Antoine Vermette and Nate Thompson manning the middle, coach Randy Carlyle will look to exploit it as Anaheim tries to take one step closer to a Stanley Cup Final berth. Their last appearance was 10 years ago when they defeated the Ottawa Senators in five games to capture the franchise's lone Stanley Cup.

The Ducks evened the series with a 3-2 overtime victory on Thursday on Corey Perry's third overtime goal of the playoffs, matching the NHL record for most OT tallies in a playoff year with Mel Hill in 1939 and Maurice Richard in 1951.

Carlyle was behind the bench for the 2007 Cup victory and feels that the performance by players at two positions will determine the series winner.

"If our goaltender can outplay their goaltender, then our chances go up dramatically," Carlyle said. "If our centermen can outplay their centermen, our chances go up dramatically."

Despite missing an opportunity to take a commanding lead in the series had they completed the rally from a two-goal third period deficit, Predators winger James Neal knows his team has plenty of fight left in them.

"It's 2-2. Nothing's going to be easy," Neal said. "That's why it's the Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to win in sports. And we should be confident in our group. We have a chance to go in their rink, win a game, and come back with a chance to win in our home building. So put a smile on our face, enjoy it, get ready, and feel good about a tough game in their rink and what can come from that."

The Predators will need goaltender Pekka Rinne to revert to the form he displayed in the two series wins over Chicago and St. Louis if they are to secure their first Stanley Cup Final appearance. Rinne posted a .951 save percentage in the first two rounds but has plummeted to .911 against Anaheim. Given that Rinne's season percentage was .918, it is incumbent upon the Predators' defense to limit the number of shots the Finnish netminder faces.

Rinne claims to have put the Game 4 loss behind him and knows he will need to be at his best behind a short-handed team.

"Game 4 has to be behind us already, and we have to focus on the next one," Rinne said. "That was a missed opportunity, but we battled back, and obviously didn't have a good start. We did not a good first period but we battled back and showed a lot of character."
