With less than a month until playoff hockey returns, we take a look at the four best things about playoff hockey in Nashville.
Just a note before I start this, my top five is coming based off of last year’s playoffs. Last season’s Stanley Cup run set the standard for what Nashville Predators playoff hockey is now. The playoff runs of the past were great, and the environment was always fantastic, however, last season just kicked it up about 20 notches.
The standard is set, and the bar is higher than ever.
With 10 games left in the regular season, the Nashville Predators are sitting atop the NHL with 106 points. They need 12 more points to clinch home ice advantage throughout the playoffs.
The Nashville Predators that we see right now are a direct result of the team that fell two wins short of a Stanley Cup, a season ago.
The team and fans of last season made Predators hockey a recognizable brand, and brought an aura of southern excitement into a northern sport.
With that, we take a look at the top 5 most exciting things about playoff hockey in Nashville.
