Preds fans change playoff routines in hopes for Game 7 victory
SMASHVILLE, Tenn. —
Winnipeg has won twice in the series at Bridgestone Arena so Preds fans are changing up their pregame routines to do what they can to flip the script.
“I wore my white away jersey for the games we lost so I’m in my gold one today," said Taylor Wagner said. "Finished this up in order to wear it."
He's referencing his predator skull helmet mad with a 3D printer to wear to Game 7 on Thursday night.
The plaza was abuzz before the game, when Sam Cremeens walked through. The balloon artist was inside an eight foot tall Gnash costume made entirely of balloons.
“It’s a six hour build so I was up half the night last night in my studio building it," Cremeens said.
He built an eight foot tall Pekka Rinne costume last year and showed it off on Fox 17 This Morning.
The largest crowd yet filled Walk of Fame Park outside Bridgestone Arena as several thousand fans filed in. Security was forced to turn away many fans once the lawn reached capacity.
The Nashville Predators ultimately lost to the Winnipeg Jets 5-1 in Game 7, eliminating themselves from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
