As promised, there were big surprises inside of Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena before the first Stanley Cup Playoff game between the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche.
First, the Preds unveiled a new catfish tank with a fish named Gill (probably after Vince, probably a play on words) and another fish named Ben will be added soon. But, that wasn’t all.
Prior to the puck dropping Rascal Flatts took the ice to deliver a melting rendition of the National Anthem with Gary LeVox handling most of the singing duties before Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus stepped in on harmonies.
The Preds won 5-2.
