The Nashville Predators authored an emotional moment before Game Six of their second-round matchup against the St. Louis Blues.
Predators forward Kevin Fiala made his first public appearance at Bridgestone Arena since suffering a season-ending injury in the first game of the second round. While on crutches, a grinning Fiala waved his rally towel while the Predators crowd roared in support.
During the postseason, the Predators have embraced their city’s country lineage, tabbing a famous musician to sing the national anthem before every game. They’ve also had a community leader lead the arena in a rally towel wave from the band stage.
Fiala was first shown on camera ambling down a set of steps with crutches.
Fiala was so happy to be back in Bridgestone Arena.
The crowd went crazy, both cheering for Fiala and pumping their team up.
The Predators can win the series against the St. Louis Blues today. If the Blues win today, their Game Seven will take place on Tuesday.
The "Fiala Wall" is filling up with well wishes from #Smashville! Don't forget you can send a card too! Address in next tweet. #PredsPride pic.twitter.com/kEcq7bEE2r
