Nashville Predators - Bridgestone Arena Pictures - NHL Panorama
This panorama of the Nashville Predators defeating the Detroit Red Wings® in front of a sold out crowd was taken by James Blakeway. The Nashville Predators were established in 1997 and announced as the National Hockey League’s® 27th team on May 4, 1998, and played their first game on October 10, 1998, against the Florida Panthers. The club has become synonymous with its hard-working teams and organizational philosophy of drafting and developing players from within. The team’s logo pays tribute to fossils found in 1971, when a construction crew working on the First American Center in downtown Nashville came across the bones of a saber-toothed tiger.

This panorama, photographed by James Blakeway, captures the Nashville Predators® celebrating their Western Conference Quarterfinal victory over the Detroit Red Wings® in Game 5. The Predators® won the series 4-1, capping a season in which they finished ahead of their Central Division rival for the first time. They also beat the Red Wings® for the first time in their third playoff series. The Predators® made it even sweeter by handing the Red Wings® their earliest postseason departure since a six-game first-round loss to Edmonton in 2006. In Nashville tradition, the fans tossed catfish on the ice in celebration.
