The Nashville Predators got past the Anaheim Ducks without their top two centers, but they might have one of them back for the start of the Stanley Cup Final.

Ryan Johansen has been lost for the season, but general manager David Poile said Wednesday he hopes captain Mike Fisher can practice on Thursday and added that there is "a real good chance" Fisher will be able to play in Game 1 of the Final.

The Predators will play the winner of Thursday's Game 7 between the Pittsburgh Penguins and Ottawa Senators.

Fisher sustained what appeared to be a head injury in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final. He missed two games, but did take part in the celebration following Game 6.

Fisher has not scored a point in 14 games this postseason, but had 18 goals and 24 assists in 72 regular season games.
