Predators 10th Anniversary Moment - #1
Thank you to all who voted in our  NashvillePredators.com 10th Anniversary Moment polls. Based on your votes we narrowed down our list of 64 moments from the franchise's history to the top five.

Here are the results for the NashvillePredators.com 10th Anniversary Moment as based on your votes:
#1 - Nashville's first playoff win (April 11, 2004)
finished first in the Franchise Firsts Bracket to advance to Final 16
Tomas Vokoun was spectacular, stopping 41 shots, and Adam Hall scored the game-winning goal with just 15 seconds left in the first period as the Predators knocked off the rival Detroit Red Wings, 3-1, to claim the first playoff victory in franchise history in front of a rocking sell-out crowd at the Sommet Center.

#2 - Sullivan debuts with hat trick vs. San Jose (Feb. 18, 2004)
finished first in the Hat Tricks & Shutouts Bracket to advance to Final 16
Steve Sullivan started his tenure as a Nashville Predator with a bang, recording a hat trick and assisting on another goal to lead his new team to a 7-4 stomping of San Jose at Sommet Center.

#3 - Local owners purchase team (December 7, 2007)
finished first in the Notable Accomplishments Bracket to advance to Final 16
Predators Holdings LLC announced that the group’s purchase of the Nashville Predators and Powers Management (the company that operates the Sommet Center) for $193 million from Craig Leipold completed, and the local ownership group took over the day-to-day operation of the National Hockey League team and the Sommet Center.

#4 - 2-2 tie at Calgary erupts in brawl sparked by Vokoun and Iginla (Jan. 16, 2003)
finished first in the Overtime Bracket to advance to Final 16
The pot was boiling for the majority of regulation, but the top finally blew off with just two seconds remaining in overtime when Flames start Jarome Iginla charged goaltender Tomas Vokoun while driving to the net. A fed-up Vokoun immediately took his anger out on the Calgary captain, and everyone piled on – including Flames netminder Jamie McLennan who made the 200-foot skate to the other end of the ice.

#5 - Franchise Awarded (May 4, 1998)
finished second in the Franchise Firsts Bracket to advance to Final 16
For former Nashville Predators owner Craig Leipold, bringing the NHL’s 27th franchise to Nashville was a no-brainer. At the time, Nashville was one of the fastest growing markets in the United States and, with the addition of the Nashville Arena, seemed like the perfect home for a professional hockey team.
