Fun in Music City

Nashville3NASHVILLE -- Greetings from Nashtown, a cool town despite all the L.A. Raider fans who have invaded the city for tomorrow's game between the Oilers and Raiders.

Actually, the Predators hope all the Raider fans buy some hockey tickets and help the team get over 14,000 paid for tonight. As many of you know, if the team doesn't average that number this season, they can break their lease and head to Kansas City. Or Las Vegas. Wherever.

As far as tonight's game goes, got to think it's a big one for the visiting Panthers. Coming off a tough loss to Buffalo, a game they coulda, shoulda won. Yep, broken record time.

Be very interesting to see how this team comes out. They have a built in excuse about the late travel and all that. But the Panthers are better than this Nashville team.

Let's see if the Panthers use the excuse or come out and take the game to the Predators and get out of here with a win.

Nashville1 And, yes, this could be the last time Florida plays a hockey game here. Sad. I really like this town. Hope the Preds stay.

-- At least half of the Tomas Vokoun homecoming deal won't play tonight: Nashville is going with Dan Ellis in goal instead of former Florida farmhand -- and Vokoun replacement -- Chris Mason.

Will update Florida's choice in goal once we speak with JM at 6:45 Miami time.

-- Thanks for all who emailed. Yes, I know, UBuffalo beat Akron today. Seriously, thanks for the updates. Clowns.
