Johansen to sit out game for Columbus on Tuesday
Hello everyone! We had a practice Monday morning and after practice we all went back to the hotel and had some lunch and then we headed across the street and had a big mini-putt tournament.

Of course, my team won. I was with Brandon Archibald, Allen York and Petr Straka and we came out with the win. There were a couple of side bets and it was fun.

We had a team dinner on the water and it was a beautiful restaurant. After that, we just relaxed the rest of the night and played some X-box and watched a movie so it was all good.

It was pretty big to get that rest in yesterday. I am sitting out Tuesday's game against Minnesota. Rest is a big thing in this sport, and making sure you're staying healthy, so it was nice to have a day off Monday and then to have Tuesday off. I know I'll feel re-energized and I'll be ready to go on Wednesday.  

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
