The Nashville Predators have been around since 1989 and have never been to the Stanley Cup Finals, this year is their first year to make it.

Fast forward to today. The Nashville Predators are Western Conference champions after eliminating top-seeded Chicago, then St. Louis and most recently Anaheim.

The organization has worked hard on and off the ice to build the buzz, and the Nashville/Middle Tennessee market has gone Predators-crazy. This season has been completely sold out, and national analysts are hailing Bridgestone Arena as the loudest venue in the NHL.

The Predators’ presence and success has fueled a boom in youth hockey leagues, high school hockey and adult leagues in Middle Tennessee. More ice arenas are being built to meet the demand.

Preds stars such as potential playoff MVP-to-be goalie Pekka Rinne, all-star defensemen P.K. Subban and Roman Josi and top goal scorer Filip Forsberg are now household names in a city accustomed to worshipping Eddie George, Steve McNair, Jevon Kearse, Marcus Mariota and other Titan greats past and present.

The Nashville Predators will play the winner of the Pittsburgh Penguins- Ottawa Senators. Who do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
