Minus Ryan Johansen, Predators find a way to beat Ducks

Minus Ryan Johansen, Predators find a way to beat Ducks

Anaheim Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf has been fined for apparently using a homophobic slur during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals.

And the Predators have a chance at history on their own ice, a win away from the first Stanley Cup Final berth in the franchise history.

But as the Predators have shown throughout this series, this is a team that gets better and better as the game wears on.

Nashville trailed 1 to 0 in the second period after a Chris Wagner goal. Getzlaf, the Ducks' leading scorer in the postseason, expressed a measure of remorse after the Ducks' 3-1 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Does Trump Believe In Climate Change? White House Won't Say
The rejection of the agreement has of course been met with rebukes from other world leaders and climate change experts. Peabody Energy, America's biggest coal mining firm, said the agreement would have badly affected the U.S. economy.


"That hasn't surprised anyone", Subban said. It was his second goal of the playoffs. After he scored his first career playoff goal, the National Hockey League concussion spotter asked him to go into the locker room for further tests. And he has been a consistent threat in these playoffs, with a pair of five-game points streaks. They've pulled off dramatic comebacks and brought themselves back into two series (including their second-round matchup against Edmonton) with confidence and a dedication to sticking to the game plan.

With so much star power on the shelf, it wasn't surprising that a lesser-light would stand up and take advantage of the opportunity.

Johansen led the Predators with 13 points in 14 playoff games while centering their risky top line alongside Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson.

The team announced the severity of Johansen's condition and identified the injury Sunday, saying his recovery is expected to take two to three months.

NEXT plc (NXT) Upgraded to Buy at Investec
The stock of Intertek Group plc (LON:ITRK) has "Underperform" rating given on Thursday, October 13 by RBC Capital Markets. The stock was sold at an average price of GBX 1,053 ($13.70), for a total transaction of £68,139.63 ($88,642.68).


"Well, it seems that when the pressure's been applied, we've responded in the proper manner, and I would expect the same", Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. He made 10 saves. Forsberg played primarily with Colton Sissons and Aberg, while Arvidsson and James Neal flanked Calle Jarnkrok.

NOTES: C Frederick Gaudreau made his Stanley Cup playoff debut for Nashville, and veteran C Vern Fiddler returned from a two-game absence. Forsberg has been an initiator and sometimes a closer, but plenty of others have followed his example.

Pekka Rinne - Nashville's netminder delivered a strong performance, stopping 31 of 32 shots, in a 3-1 Game Five win at Anaheim.

Johansen's teammates apparently had no idea he was seriously hurt during the game. He also is the relatively frugal organization's highest-paid forward, with a cap hit of $6 million.

Mattis warns China on North Korea and South China Sea
But it differs from the US and its allies on how to rein in the North's rapidly escalating nuclear and ballistic missile program. China said that the U.S. warship trespassed in its waters "without permission" and Chinese warships warned it to leave.


"We knew coming into tonight that we've just got to come together, play well defensively and grind it out", Rinne said. Prior to Game 5, Rickard Rakell was a late scratch.
