Johansen registered an assist on each of Nashville's three power-play goals during Friday's game against Chicago.
Johnansen also notched two shots on net and a blocked shot during the win, and the only blemish during his 19:10 of ice time was his minus-2 rating. As the youngest player in the league to score at least 60 points in each of the past three seasons, Johansen's strong outing Friday is likely a sign of things to come for the 2016-17 campaign.
Ryan Johansen potted his fourth goal of the playoffs in Monday's Game 6 win over the Sharks.
Johansen was effective at the faceoff circle as well, winning the battle there seven times in eight tries. The 23-year-old started out the postseason slowly, but he's started to find his groove against San Jose as he's lit the lamp three times and dished out a pair of helpers. Nashville will continue to lean on him heading into Thursday's pivotal Game 7.
Ryan Johansen picked up a power-play helper and three hits in Game 3's 4-1 victory over San Jose on Tuesday.
After just three points in the seven-game series against Anaheim, Johansen has returned to relevance with two goals and two assists in three outings versus the Sharks. Nashville's 60-point center has reached the scoresheet in three straight, and the Preds will need the 23-year-old to continue his consistent production into Game 4 and beyond in order to keep the series competitive.
