Predators watch party
A large crowd flocked to downtown Nashville for a watch party.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Even though the Preds take on the Blackhawks in Chicago to start the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the crowd at 501 Broadway will still be rocking.

The Predators will host a Preds Playoff Celebration on the plaza at Bridgestone Arena beginning at 6:30 p.m.

You can watch the game on a giant screen with other Preds fans and take in the happy hour from Tavern ’96. Don’t forget to bring your own chair, though!

Puck drop is at 7 p.m. for games one and two.

The series comes back to Smashville on Monday for game three. That game will not start until 8:30 p.m. The start time for game 4 on Thursday, also in Nashville, has yet to be announced.
