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.

"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.
