There’s nothing more exciting, nerve-wracking and heart-wrenching than playoff hockey, and the Nashville Predators have had their fair share over the years.
In their 22-year existence, the Nashville Predators have made it to the playoffs 12 times. It’s become an expected occurrence for them to make the playoffs every year
The Predators made the playoffs seven of eight seasons spanning from 2003 to 2012, with the franchise’s original head coach at the helm in Barry Trotz. After missing the playoffs two seasons in a row, a new era was brought in with Peter Laviolette, and the playoff appearances continued. .
In all of those journeys to securing a playoff spot, the Predators had won their division back-to-back times and even made it to the Stanley Cup Final in 2017, only to come up two wins short.
While we can all remember those heart-breaking games that knocked the Predators out of the playoffs, we have many, many other moments that we can look back on with pride. Here in no particular order are five of those memorable playoff series upon which we can reflect.
