They did it.
For the first time in NHL history, the Nashville Predators will advance to their first Stanley Cup Final after beating the Anaheim Ducks 6-3 in Game 6 of the western conference final on Monday (May 22) in Nashville.
And they did it to the sounds of Trisha Yearwood singing the National Anthem before the game. Fans can be heard singing along with her throughout the Bridgestone Arena in video footage of the performance.
