My Two Cents: The Nashville Predators race to a photo finish

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – The National Hockey League is racing to the finish line of their regular season schedule.  The “second” season begins next week with the start of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Nashville Predators have a spot in those playoffs, yet as of this writing, we don’t know who or where they will play.  It doesn’t matter, because Predators fans are RABID about their team even though their play of late hasn’t been too consistent.

Nashville Predators fall to the Detroit Red Wings 3-2

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators can’t seem to find a way to win games lately, falling tonight to the visiting Detroit Red Wings, 3-2.  

This is the third consecutive loss for the home boys, and Detroit comes away with a sweep of the two game series.

It wasn’t from lack of effort, which coach Peter Laviolette is pleased with, they just can’t seem to catch a break or get the puck to bounce in their favor.

My Two Cents: Nashville Predators Make History, Destiny to be Determined

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterNashville, TN – Well, now they’ve gone and done it.  Those Nashville Predators have won their second round playoff series against the St. Louis Blues.  They’ve done forged themselves into the record books, and will play for the Western Conference Championship against a yet to be determined opponent.

I don’t know if Predators fans can take it up another notch, but if there was a fan base that’s willing to say, “hey, hold my beer, and watch this” it’s Nashville. 

I’ve said all along that being at the Bridgestone Arena during a hockey game is the most earth shattering experience and I’ve seen AC/DC, Ted Nugent, and Cheap Trick in concert and by God, those were LOUD!
