The Nashville Predators and Ryan Johansen face the forward's former club in the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight (at 7 p.m. CT). 

Nashville (23-17-8) plays one final game before the All-Star Break against one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. The Jackets (32-11-4) are 5-5-0 in the their last 10, but remain second in the ultra-competitive Metropolitan Division after logging a 16-game winning streak earlier this season.
