The TV is on and the legs are elevated for the Predators two biggest fans watching at home.

The team's leading scorer, Ryan Johansen, sent out a pre-game tweet ahead of Game 1 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Johansen, who is out after having surgery on his left thigh, said that he and Kevin Fiala, who broke his femur, are both out for the remainder of the postseason, but were in position to root on their teammates Monday night.
