Anaheim's Ryan Kesler, who's always been one for getting under the skin of the opposition, may have took it to another level against Johansen on Sunday night. Anaheim still rallied to force overtime on Hampus Lindholm's clutch third-period goal, but James Neal ended it for Nashville. But like, his family and his friends watching him play, I don't know how you cheer for a guy like that.
"He just blows my mind", said Johansen to media members after Game 2. "It's a tough break, tough play and personally, for sure, I want to have that back". "It's only going to get escalated from here". Register now for the free webinar. They also came back from being down 0-2 in a series for the first time in franchise history. "They play a physical game". Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said he hadn't heard or read Johansen's complaint about Kesler but defended his 24-year-old center.
"I think Ryan has been completely composed".
With a minute left in the first, Vatanen fired a rocket past Rinne for a power-play goal to slice the Ducks' deficit to 2-1.
"He's a guy that you love to have on your team and you hate to play against", Manson said. "So hopefully it is working". Expect more next year. May.
So far through the first two games, Johansen has gotten the better of the matchup, tallying four points in two games.
So far, the Predators have matched the Ducks almost hit for hit and still have the home-ice advantage in this series.
With the series now tied at 1, the Ducks will head to Nashville for Game 3 on Tuesday at the raccous Bridgestone Arena.

The boisterous crowd at Bridgestone Arena has been a popular topic across the National Hockey League during the playoffs. The lone goal held up for nearly 40 minutes, when Evgeni Malkin scored at 14:25 of the third to tie the game. "Obviously he's a big body".
The Preds were seemingly on their way to seizing control of this series Sunday evening, but just as their coach had warned couldn't afford to let their guard down against a team as good as the Ducks. "There might be times when we overuse him, but when you have that option you're going to take advantage of it".
That means crunching the Predators whenever possible, a style the Ducks play very well.
Ritchie, with an assist from Getzlaf, lifted the Ducks to a 4-3 lead by scoring with 2:53 remaining in the second. "Good vision and he can skate", Kesler said of the 6-foot-3, 218-pound Johansen.

"Our players are really good at not fearing the outcome, and we play the way we play", Boucher said.
Therefore the Ducks will have trouble advancing past the Predators to the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals.
Now Laviolette will have the last change, though he didn't tip his hand at any possible adjustments. "From the flipside, the positive is we lost in overtime, so I think we were able to weather the storm in terms of how (Nashville) came out".
