Predator Playoff Win Drought Quelled!

More Nashville Predator redemption for us!!  We recently broke our curse of only attending losing games in the regular season and now we have also broken the spell for playoff games as well!

April 11, 2012 - We finally got to see an exciting 3-2 playoff WIN for the Nashville Predators in Game 1 of the Quarterfinals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs vs. the Detroit Red Wings.  We had great seats in the lower bowl of Bridgestone Arena and even NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman, was in the house and evidently sitting in our section.  Thanks to our good friend, Wayne, for attending with us.  Before the game, Ashlee even got to hob-nob with Preds mascot, Gnash, outside the arena.

After the game Ashlee got to meet another minor Preds Celebrity, Big Ben, who's beer-belly messages are always flashed on the big screen to fire up the crowd during the games.
Unfortunately Friday, April the 13th, was bad luck for the Preds as we also attended  Game 2 of the series, only to see them lose to the Red Wings 3-2.  Oh well, our streak of three winning games in a row came to and end, but we had  great, affordable seats again in the lower bowl, hung out with our good friends, Wayne, Chris and Tarryn during the game, and, of course, there is always the fact that the Wings still suck!

EDITOR'S NOTE:  The Preds did go on to win the series against Detroit in six games and moved on to the semi-finals vs. Phoenix.
