The city of music and now ice hockey
The Predators were welcomed into the NHL as part of a four team expansion that also included the Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild and the now defunct Atlanta Thrashers. The construction of Bridgestone Arena, known at the time as Nashville Arena, had only been completed in 1996 and gave the team a new and purpose-built stadium to play home matches in. Sports fans of Nashville welcomed the Predators with open arms, as at that time, the only other professional sport team to follow in the city was the Tennessee Titans of the NFL. This provided healthy competition for both teams and an even larger array of quality entertainment for the city known for its thriving and historic music scene. The team was named the Predators in recognition of the incredible discovery of the remains of a sabre-toothed tiger found in downtown Nashville in 1971. The archaeological find of the long-time extinct and legendary creature provided the inspiration for the logo and name of the team. The skull, with tremendous fangs still attached, has even been on display at home matches in the past for fans to get a view of.

Chasing championship success
Success did not come easily to the team in the early years, as they focused on steadily developing and establishing themselves in the NHL. Their fortunes improved in 2004, when the team qualified for their first Stanley Cup playoffs, however they went on to lose in the first round against the Detroit Red Wings. The Predators went on to qualify for the post-season a few more times in the following years, however they struggled to proceed past the first or second round. In 2017, the Predators came close to lifting their inaugural Stanley Cup, however they went on to suffer a heart-breaking 4-2 finals series defeat against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
