Johansen was the primary distributor on P.K. Subban's lone goal in Thursday's 5-1 series loss to the Jets, as the centerman delivered on the power play. Johansen helped wake up the home crowd in the first period, but it was a fleeting moment of jubilation as the Predators lost in Game 7 at Bridgestone Arena. While Nashville failed to advance to the conference finals, the British Columbia native bestowed 14 points (five goals, nine assists) on his fantasy owners in the playoffs and easily trumped his 0.68 points-per-game output from the regular season.
Johansen tallied two helpers in a 4-0 win versus the Jets in Monday's Game 6. That makes five games in a row with a point for Johansen, with three of those outings yielding multiple points. He also opened the postseason with a four-game point streak, so the 25-year-old has enjoyed a couple different hot stretches.
Johansen fashioned a power-play assist Thursday in a 2-1 win over the Jets. Johansen has been terrific in these playoffs, as he's uncorked four goals and six assists for a point-per-game pace dating back to the conference quarterfinals against the Avalanche.
Johansen had two power-play assists but finished with a minus-3 rating in Tuesday's 7-4 Game 3 loss to Winnipeg. While Johansen has picked up the pace offensively with four points in his last two appearances following a three-game dry spell, he's still leaving much to be desired in other categories. He was held without a shot on goal for the third time this postseason and looked overmatched at even strength. Like many of his teammates, Johansen will need to display a more complete two-way effort in Thursday's Game 4 or Nashville will have a tough time tying this series at two games apiece.
Johansen scored two goals in a 5-4 double-overtime win versus the Jets in Sunday's Game 2. Johansen started the playoffs off with a bang, notching five points in his first four games. However, he had been held pointless for three contests until this outing. With these two goals, though, the pivot has 16 points in his last 19 games.
