ANAHEIM, Calif. — Predators captain Mike Fisher did not play Saturday in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Anaheim Ducks.

Fisher left the Predators’ Game 4 overtime loss at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday with an undisclosed injury. He appeared dazed by an inadvertent knee to the side of his head from Ducks defenseman Josh Manson. 

The respective absences of Fisher and Ryan Johansen, who underwent season-ending surgery on his left thigh Thursday evening, forced the Predators to assemble a makeshift forward lineup without their top two centers.

Here is how the Predators’ lines appeared based on pregame warmups:

Filip Forsberg — Colton Sissons —Pontus Aberg

Colin Wilson — Frederick Gaudreau — Austin Watson

Viktor Arvidsson — Calle Jarnkrok — James Neal 

Cody McLeod — Vernon Fiddler — Miikka Salomaki
