The Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp will host “Preds Party in the Park” on Saturday (May 7) and Monday (May 9) for Games Three and Four of Round 1 of the 2022 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Preds and Colorado Avalanche.
The viewing party for the home playoff games are hosted at the Music City Walk of Fame Park, which is located across Rep. John Lewis Way from Bridgestone Arena.
The parties are free and open to the public and give fans who don’t have tickets a chance to cheer on the team at Bridgestone Arena. Music City Walk of Fame Park will activate two hours prior to game time. A large video screen will show the game feed, and food and drink options will be available for purchase on site. DJ Robert Luke will provide entertainment and attendees are invited to bring blankets and chairs.
The viewing party for Game Three on Saturday opens at 1:30 p.m. with the puck dropping at 3:30 p.m. The viewing party for Game Four on Monday opens at 6:30 p.m. and puck drops at 8:30 p.m.
Colorado defeated the Predators in the first two games of the series. Nashville suffered a devastating 7-2 loss in Game One when the team started backup goaltender David Rittich and was forced to put in Connor Ingram. In Game Two, Ingram put on a legendary performance forcing the game into overtime before the Avalanche scored the game winning goal, winning 2-1. Ingram saved 49 shots but it wasn’t enough to even the series.
The Predators are 34-27 all-time when playing a postseason game at Bridgestone Arena.
