Predators' Mike Fisher: Iffy to play in Game 5

Fisher (undisclosed) is questionable to face the Ducks for Game 5 on Saturday, The Tennessean reports.

The Predators have received word that top-line pivot Ryan Johansen will miss 2-to-3 months due to a thigh injury that required emergency surgery, so all eyes will be on Fisher leading up to the pivotal road match, even if fantasy owners have given up on him since he's still searching for a point in the playoffs after 14 games. The 36-year-old is naturally an option in the faceoff circle and he's delivered three hits in each of his last two games, so there's still tangible value with Fisher in some of the unconventional scoring formats.
