The Predators family reunites on Lower Broadway

Words can’t describe enough how much I miss the loyal and passionate Predators faithful at Bridgestone Arena. That place will be rocking just like it was for the 2017 Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins (pictured above) whenever fans can safely return at full capacity.

We don’t know when that will be due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but normalcy will one day return. And normalcy for Bridgestone Arena is the place rocking to Rammstein before faceoffs, chants from Cell Block 303 in the upper deck, and of course Gnash propelling from the rafters.

Health and safety is always the top priority and there’s no way we can rush a mass amount of fans into the arena with everything that’s going on with the pandemic.

It’s been a rough year for Nashville for many different reasons, including a tornado in early March and the Christmas Day bombing that destroyed many historical building just blocks away from Bridgestone Arena.

We need our Predators family to get back together when it’s safe to do so. It will be a form of healing for many of us who share our common bond of loving the Nashville Predators.

That’s the top New Years resolution for Predators hockey in 2021. And win or lose, it’s not even close. To see the fans together again in Bridgestone Arena.
