Preds win from ousting Ducks to reach 1st Stanley Cup Final

Pleasant surprises are a recurring theme this year in Nashville. He shared the club scoring lead with Arvidsson in the regular season, posting 61 points. Kevin Fiala was another.

Forsberg screamed for the puck from Mattias Ekholm on the Game 5-winning play as he surged ahead of an Anaheim defense who got caught pinching in a push for a go-ahead goal. Colton Sissons is another.

Johansen, the fourth overall pick of the 2010 National Hockey League draft by Columbus, had 14 goals and 47 assists while playing in all 82 regular-season games. Neither forward made the trip to Nashville.

Throw Pontus Aberg onto the list.

The Predators will need all the support they can receive.

And he looks like another future star. The Predators have won five playoff series and lead the Ducks in the conference finals 3-2, while the Ducks have won 12 series in as many seasons - and a Stanley Cup in 2007.

Nashville is 6-1 SU in its last seven games at home.

And there was the goal. Forsberg has scored two third-period goals, equalizers in Games 3 and 4, and he added the primary assist on the potentially series-swinging, final-frame goal in Game 5. But he'll be fine for Game 6.

For the first time in Nashville Predators history, a major National Hockey League trophy will be in Bridgestone Arena. In February, he scored back-to-back hat tricks as part of a stretch with 10 goals in five games. Johansen had emergency surgery shortly after Game 4 and was ruled out for the rest of the playoffs. "We've got to put our foot on the gas pedal again and make sure we're ready to play". Wilson made the Ducks pay, slipping a hard backhand around Bernier for his second goal of the playoffs and the 13th of his Predators postseason career, tying four other Preds for the franchise lead. I mean, just coming here for them, like on a Sunday afternoon supporting us, it means the world to us.

Wilson converted a backhand shot of an initial shot from P.K. Subban. He was actually taking into concussion protocol after the goal was scored. He's a guy in my opinion who could have been playing on our team all year. "We have a solid team and that includes depth". "We've seen Freddy a couple times". Nashville will have an opportunity to clinch the first Stanley Cup finals berth in franchise history.

Fortunately for the Predators, the system is in place for young, energizing players to thrive. He went 21-7-4 in the regular season and has appeared in three games this postseason.
