Preds’ Games Against Avalanche, Blue Jackets Postponed (Updated)

Parts of Bridgestone Arena Flooded After Water Main Break

NHL: Stanley Cup Playoffs-Anaheim Ducks at Nashville Predators Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: The NHL has now postponed Saturday’s game between the Predators and Columbus Blue Jackets as well. No make-up dates for either game have been announced. Predators’ CEO Sean Henry told Fox17 there was as much as three feet of water in certain parts of Bridgestone Arena.

The original story is below


The NHL has postponed Friday’s game between the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche at Bridgestone Arena due to a water main break outside the arena. A new date for the game has not been announced.

In addition, the NHL also says Saturday’s matchup against the Columbus Blue Jackets could be impacted as well. The league says a decision on that game will be made later.

A number of Twitter users posted scenes from around Bridgestone, and... yeah... it doesn’t seem ideal for a hockey game.

This also impacts the Music City Hockey Classic between the NCAA’s Northeastern Huskies and Western Michigan Broncos. That game was supposed to take place at 6:30 Friday, following the conclusion of Preds-Avs. There’s been no official word on the status of that game.
