Josi played through a broken finger and nose in the playoffs, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports. Despite the ailments, Josi finished second on the team with nine points (one goal, eight assists) in the playoffs. He showed a lot of heart in the playoffs and impressed the masses by logging a ridiculous 49:42 against the Sharks in Game 4 of the conference semifinals. After notching a career-high 61 points in the regular season, Josi is sure to command an early draft pick in fantasy leagues this fall.
Josi led all skaters with 49:42 of ice time, and had an assist Thursday night in a 4-3 triple overtime win over the Sharks in Game 4. You might've expected more from Josi in such a drawn out battle, though his helper did extend his points streak to all four games of the series. He's now bagged five apples against Team Teal and is showing no signs of slowing down offensively. Top defenders like Josi are expected to log big minutes, but logging close to 50 minutes is ridiculous and a testament to his superb conditioning.
Josi assisted on a power-play goal, adding two shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Sharks in Game 3. Josi is finding some consistency against the Sharks, notching points in three straight for a total of four. The blueliner struggled to finish out the series against Anaheim, failing to reach the scoresheet in five straight, but it seems the 25-year-old is back to his regular season form. Overall, the 2008 second-round pick has seven helpers -- two on the power play -- and six PIM in the playoffs to date.

Josi had two assists in Sunday's Game 2 win over the Ducks. The Predators have jumped out to a 2-0 series lead and Josi has been a big factor, registering three assists and logging heavy minutes.
