JANUARY 2018 USAHOCKEYMAGAZINE.COM // 25 The crowds that packed the streets outside the Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville show the passion that Predators fans have for the game. "It was almost like we won the championship without win- ning the championship. I've never really seen it like that for any sporting event." Hockey in Tennessee has definitely come a long way over the past 20 years. Nat Harden, senior vice president of ticket sales & youth hockey for the Preds, remembers the pains that the team would go through in the early days to educate fans. "When we first started, we did a lot of education. For example, you would come to a game and pick up headphones, and if there was an icing call, someone would come over the headphones and explain the rules," Harden recalls.
