You’ll have to excuse the folks in Nashville. They’re not used to this.
After the Predators closed out their second-round Stanley Cup playoffs series with a 3-1 victory over the Blues, Nashville television station WSMV showed footage of happy yellow-clad fans leaving Bridgestone Arena.
One of the things we love doing is taking ordinary life situations and making them a wild and crazy experience. The Predators were a natural group to collaborate with since the whole city is rallying around them, including us,. Austin Bever (the Austin in Austin and Colin) told The Tennessean on Monday.
It was going to be a low-key (read: low-budget) effort, until the Predators got involved, at the CEO’s behest. Soon it involved Bridgestone Arena, dancing with mascot the Gnash and the Predators Ice Girls, as well as with fans at a watch party last Thursday.

The video was uploaded Sunday afternoon to the duo’s Facebook page and by Monday afternoon had been viewed more than 640,000 times.
The Preds can close out the series and reach the Stanley Cup Final for the first time with a win Monday.

Nashville appeared to grab a 1-0 lead in Game 6 when Colton Sissons banged home a rebound early in the second period. However, referee Kevin Pollock clearly whistled the play dead before the puck went in because he lost sight of it after Matt Murray made an initial save. What Pollock did not see is that Murray, with his back turned towards the official, never had control of the puck, and it had bounced into the blue paint where Sissons was waiting.
That particular play is not reviewable, an unfortunate bad break for the Predators and another sign in the eyes of conspiracy theorists–and Crosby haters–that the league wanted Crosby and the Penguins to win the Cup.
