Predator fans have made Bridgestone Arena one of the loudest arenas in the NHL. The home of Predator nation can be an intimidating barn.
As much as the arena is home to the fans, it is the home away from home for the players. Ever wonder what their home is like?
I'm glad you asked.
Why don't we take a tour of the part of the arena that is home to the Predators.
Predator fans will recall that the arena flooded in May of 2010, and one of the casualties of that event was the team's locker room, meeting space, and work out areas. All had to be rebuilt after the flood. After taking a tour, it can be said that the facilities are first class.
This is a glimpse of where the Predators spend much of their day. While we see them on ice for practice, the hub of their activity occurs in these facilities.
I want to thank Colin Wilson, who was gracious enough to take an afternoon that he had off to give me the tour.
