Preds' Johansen: Ducks not that different from team we beat last year

  Preds' Johansen: Ducks not that different from team we beat last year If the Western Conference Final between the Anaheim Ducks and Nashville Predators is anything like last year's first-round matchup, Ryan Johansen likes his team's chances. The Predators bested the Ducks in seven games last season and as Johansen sees it, the Ducks have not upgraded their roster much over last year.

If it was the Anaheim Ducks' plan to make Thursday's Game 4 interesting, they certainly succeeded.

After taking a 2-0 advantage late into the third period, the Ducks watched as the Nashville Predators responded with a cannon from P.K. Subban and a goal with the extra attacker by Filip Forsberg in the dying seconds to send the game to overtime.

Defenseman Kevin Bieksa spoke postgame, suggesting it was a gift by the team for the fans.

Predators' Ryan Johansen rips Ryan Kesler: 'I don’t know how you cheer for a guy like that'

  Predators' Ryan Johansen rips Ryan Kesler: 'I don’t know how you cheer for a guy like that' Ryan Kesler's reputation as one the NHL's best lock-down forwards didn't come to be without ruffling a few feathers along the way. Add Ryan Johansen to that list. The Predators center aired a few grievances regarding the play of his Ducks counterpart Sunday after Anaheim evened the Western Conference finals at one game apiece with a chippy 5-3 victory, which featured both Kesler and Johansen jawing back and forth.

“We Just Didn’t Give Up”. Video: Josi’s late PPG lifts Preds to 2-1 victory in Game 3. Game Four of the Western Conference Final is set for Thursday night at Bridgestone Arena before the Preds head back to Anaheim for Game Five on Saturday.

"Well, we're trying to keep the game entertaining. Sell it to the fans," Bieksa said.

As for forward Nate Thompson, he admitted that the Ducks weren't too worried after coughing up the lead late.

"They tied it, and we couldn't come in (to the locker room) and sulk about it," Thompson said. "We went out and took care of business."

That "business" tied the series at two games apiece as both clubs head back to Anaheim for Game 5.

Why the Preds-Pens Stanley Cup Final will be stellar .
The NHL is a copycat league, and you can count on 28 front offices directing their attention to the Nashville Predators and Pittsburgh Penguins over the course of the next few weeks, attempting to replicate the clubs' models of success. In that sense, it's ironic that despite the Preds and Pens - at this point, at least - having rosters built with completely different blueprints, the first team to four wins will define what it takes to build a winner in today's league.
