Ryan Johansen Injured NHL Predators star better after emergency surgery

Ryan Johansen Injured NHL Predators star better after emergency surgery

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.

The Nashville Predators are happy to be at home for Game 6 of the Western Conference final.

Anaheim players suffered some injuries. In the third period, Nashville kept pouring it on. It's been more like last man standing. Bernier stopped 16 of 18 shots faced, while Gibson was a ideal 10-for-10 for the Ducks in the first period.

Nashville Predators center Colin Wilson (33) scores against Anaheim Ducks goalie Jonathan Bernier during the second period of Game 5 in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup Western Conference finals in Anaheim, Calif., Saturday, May 20, .

Barghouti, 58, was filmed breaking his supposed strike, eating chocolate bars and cookies while hiding in his cell bathroom. Graffiti in Arabic reads "hunger and not kneeling", on a wall overlooking Israel's Ofer prison in the occupied West Bank.

Nashville knows it will have to have a quicker start to Game 6.

Not only did the Predators lose Game Four and the chance to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Final, but they also lost their leading point-producer, Ryan Johansen, to injury. Gibson reportedly expects to be ready for Game Six.

Nashville got a power play shortly before the second intermission when Josh Manson was whistled for cross-checking Filip Forsberg, who got away with an unpenalized stick to Manson's mouth moments earlier. The Predators are 52-32-13 overall and 30-9-9 at home while the Ducks are 56-28-14 overall and 22-17-9 on the road.

Nashville breezed past the Chicago Blackhawks in Round One with a sweep.

Ariana Grande announces benefit concert in honour of the victims
We can't directly link these to the events of Monday night and are continuing to monitor the situation. She added that she would announce the details of the concert as soon as the plans were confirmed .

Here's a look at each team's complete playoff roster, including how each player came to his current team - and how much time he spent paying his dues in the minors. However in this game they had more shot attempts but lost.

The Predators will need all the support they can receive. In the process, they frustrated the bejeebers out of the Ducks by not allowing them to set up in the offensive zone.

The Ducks can't take the mindset of having an easier path to the playoffs, however. It was a masterful five minutes of hockey. Goalie Pekka Rinne protested about Anaheim's play around his net after Game 4, echoing a fairly common refrain from opponents in recent years struggling to match the physical game played by the Ducks, who don't take the laid-back approach suggested by their Southern California home. The Penguins lead that series 3-2.

Let's get to the GBU... While it's not unusual for a team to go 0-for-11, as the Senators have done this series on power play, in a given stretch of the regular season, the playoffs are a different monster.
