In December 2010, we invaded Atlanta with 70 Predator fans. In April 2011, we took St. Louis with 65 citizens of Smashville. Last October, we took the entire Midwest.

This time, we’re tackling Rocky Top.

On November 17th, it’s Nashville Predators Night in Knoxville, Tennessee, as the Knoxville Ice Bears host the Mississippi RiverKings, and you can be there! The Ice Bears will be wearing Predators-themed jerseys and there will be other familiar Predators-themed happenings around the Knoxville Coliseum.

We know life has been hard without professional hockey in Nashville…and that’s why we decided to do something about it!

PuckScene.com, along with Cellblock 303 and Penalty Box Radio, has teamed up with the Nashville Predators to present the Smashville Express.

For the total sum of $25 you will receive:

- Round trip transportation from Bridgestone Arena to Knoxville and back.
- One (1) ticket to the November 17th Ice Bears vs. RiverKings game.
- Parking in the Bridgestone Arena garage.
- Giveaways!
- Hockey!
