Nashville Predators' Stanley Cup Hopes Dashed With Ryan Johansen Injury

By Anthony Blake

It’s been a great run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the Nashville Predators, but their hopes of reaching the mountain top took a huge hit with the injury of Ryan Johansen.

While his feud with Anaheim Ducks two-way center Ryan Kesler has been the topic du jour from the series, his absence will be felt in many ways for the Predators.

From the play of netminder Pekka Rinne to the vibe in the arena and passion from the fanbase, this Nashville story is just too good to end this way.

Hopefully these NHL darlings can find a way to rally without Johansen and still keep things interesting in the Western Conference finals.
