No Ping-Pong for you! How should the Predators defend home ice on Friday?

While other series have guys throwing elbows to the head, pulling hair, or cross-checking opponents in the face, the rivalry between the Nashville Predators and Detroit Red Wings is perhaps taking a more genteel turn. The story making the rounds this morning had Todd Bertuzzi taking away a ping-pong table which the Preds were playing with***, telling them to basically get their own. Dave Strader details that story at the end of the video here:

So the question I put to you is, how should the Predators defend their turf when the series returns to Bridgestone Arena for Game 5 on Friday?

  • Shea Weber could have his giant dog Dug stand guard outside the visitors' dressing room.
  • The arena staff could serve up a pre-game meal for the Red Wings consisting of nothing but the most tongue-scorching variety of Prince's Hot Chicken.
  • Conveniently stop cleaning out Gnash's litter box, and leave it in a corner of the Red Wings' room.

What other ideas can you come up with? It's time to chip in and help the team...

Hey, why let the facts get in the way of a good story?
