A Ghoulish Good Time: Predators vs Ducks

This is my 2nd year going to Nashville for the Halloween game. They really do it up in Nashville. There are tons of people in costumes and it’s a good time. This year I pulled out the old “beat up hockey player” costume and added some ghost paint and a sign to be the “Ghost of hockey past.”



A close up of my sign. I have the logos for the Thrashers, the Nordiques and the Whalers on there.



Another reason I was there was that the Ducks were in town and they are the favorite team of my buddy Kerry. George’s wife recently gave birth to a set of twins so I made him this sign.



I was cheering for the Preds though, so I made this sign as well.



Corry Perry clearing pucks from the net. The Nashville crowd had a lot of hate for Perry since he speared Pekka in the playoffs.



Very excited to see the Finnish Flash! The oldest guy on the team and still one of the best. He's also kicked ass for my fantasy team, the Cherokee County Cougars. Go C3!



Hiller in net seeing some shots.



Teemu close up!



George does a lot of stretching during warm ups. He does stretching on the ice, then skates around doing a lot of twists. I guess you have to limber up before beating someone's ass.



Money shot! Look at that smile.



Beleskey gets some stretching in.



George took a puck to the face during practice, so his face was pretty banged up.



Cam Fowler waiting to take some shots.



Teemu takes some shots...and they all go in because he is awesome.



That kid looks pretty excited about seeing Corey Perry.



Swarm the goalie.



This was the most awesome night ever for pucks. Teemu tossed me a puck. My friend actually caught it because he was taller. We kind of caught it together. He gave it to me. I told him that if George through me a puck, I would give it to him. Of course George Parros DID throw me a puck because he loved my awesome sign. And as promised, I gave it to Kerry.


The Preds head is down and it's time to start the game!



I didn't take many pictures at first, but when this fight got going, I figured I'd better start. Parros vs McGrattan, let's get it on!



The fight lasted forever. It was a good fight, probably a draw. Both guys got some good hits in.



And both guys can sit in the box and feel shame.



Taking the puck to Hiller.



It was a chippy game. Lots of discussions going on.



All hell broke lose when Beauchemin took out Mike Fisher.



Fisher would not return to the game.



Pekka tracking the puck.



Found him!



The Preds dancers perform a Halloween number.



Gnash is dressed up like a clown. I thought he was going to do the limbo under the carpet, but was disappointed.



Action is back.



The fans weren't the only ones in costume, the Preds girls were in the spirit, too.



I liked the kitty cat.



Across the way we have the sexy farm girl, the sexy fairy, the sexy Eskimo and the sexy cop.



Stalking George on the bench.



Hiller's net has some activity.



Gnash working the crowd.



That guy who likes showing his stomach is in the spirit. It's a pumpkin with the guitar pick emblem.



The Ducks keep trying to get one by Pekka.



Throw in another fight for good measure. Home town boy (or close to it) Blake Geoffrion gets tied up with Francois Beauchemin.



This little monkey was adorable! Don't want to be a creeper, so if this is your kid and you don't want them up here, just let me know!



Last few minutes of the game and the Ducks are swarming hard!



Preds win! Not only do they win, but Pekka gets the shut out. Poor Kerry didn't get to cheer for his Ducks a single time. I would have been glad if Teemu scored, the Cherokee County Cougars can always use another point.





It was a great night with good friends. I loved seeing the costumes, well all except the 3,482,399 fans who dressed up as a Duck Hunter.

THis turned out to be such a fun night! Thanks so much for continuing to say what fun a Preds game would be, and now I'm hooked. Awesome shots of Teemu and that smile!
