After the players strut their stuff, the pre-game fun continues with a party on the plaza, complete with live music from Small Time Rock Stars, a Duck Hunt video game tournament (in honor of that evening’s opponent, the Anaheim Ducks), free ice cream provided by Purity, a beer garden and a very special appearance by mascot GNASH – whose grand entrance is sure to delight and excite. The Predators new flagship radio station, 102.9 The Buzz, is also set to broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena all day.

Off the ice, fans will be treated to an Opening Night T-shirt courtesy of Bridgestone, live intermission music and even a new pre-game video sure to get the blood pumping. On the ice, the Predators return their core group of players, including the dynamic defensive duo of Ryan Suter and brand-new team captain Shea Weber, last season’s scoring leader Patric Hornqvist and the statuesque Finn Pekka Rinne, who will stand tall between the pipes once again. Fans will also see some new faces this season with the off-season addition of speedy center Matt Lombardi and physical defenseman Shane O'Brien.
