Ryan Johansen re-energized with Predator

Don't look now, NHL foes -- especially you http://www.authenticbruinsproshop.com/authentic-4-bobby-orr-jersey.html Western Conference powers -- but the Nashville Predators are back and they're coming for you. After meandering through the first half of the regular season, Nashville is playing its best hockey and reminding observers (and opponents, for that matter) of the Predators team that tore through the first half of 2014-15 and looked like they might be ready for their first deep playoff run. Those Predators flat-lined in the final third of last season and were bounced in the first round in six games by eventual Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks. Lately, though, Nashville is on a tear, and has been a force after acquiring top young center Ryan Johansen from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for defenseman Seth Jones in an early-January blockbuster. Since shutting out the Minnesota Wild on Jan. 16, the Predators are 17-6-6, the second-best record over that span. The team has a plus-25 goal differential over that period after being minus-10 through the first 44 games of the season. Johansen, 23, had 16 points in his Kyle Turris Womens Jersey first 16 games with the Preds, and has six points in his past four games playing mostly with wingers James Neal and Calle Jarnkrok. Neal and Johansen have combined for 10 goals and 20 points in March. I chatted with Johansen after the Predators' commanding 5-2 win over the Pacific Division-leading Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. Scott Burnside: Ryan, what were your first impressions or thoughts when you learned you were about to become a Nashville Predator? Ryan Johansen: I get that question quite a bit just from family and friends wanting to know how you feel about the whole situation and whatnot, and the first thing that kind of came to my mind was that I couldn't wait to get to work. Couldn't wait to get on the ice with the guys and just start playing because they've been a pretty steady playoff team with a good defense that needed to take that extra step to be successful in the playoffs. I felt like I could be that piece that they were looking for. For the organization to hopefully be a winning franchise. I couldn't wait to get on the ice and get to work and find out what we could be capable of as a hockey club. As soon as I found out the news I packed up, got on the plane and I was just excited to get on the ice and start playing with these guys. Burnside: Was there a sense of sadness Mikko Rantanen Womens Jersey of leaving the team that drafted you? Johansen: Definitely. The city of Columbus, the Columbus Blue Jackets will always have a special place in my heart. I have so many great memories. Friends that'll last over a lifetime that I developed over the years from playing there. I truly did love being a Blue Jacket. It was a fantastic five years of my life. Speaking for me and my family, it was just such a first-class organization and place to play. It's really unfortunate things didn't work out there because I really did believe we had a good team and we were capable of being a great team for a long time. But, you know, it's professional sports and things don't always go as planned. Burnside: Was there a family to move as well? Johansen: Actually, I have my girlfriend living with me and we have a dog. So, basically a little family. I was lucky, I guess, that I didn't own a property in Columbus. I was just leasing. So, it was easier to take care of: grab all my stuff and get over there. Burnside: What was the adjustment like http://www.officialbullsonlineshop.com/Authentic-Derrick-Rose-Jersey coming to a new team, especially as a skill player where the expectations were really high for you?
