The Nashville Predators, an upstart hockey team in a nontraditional hockey market, go on a run to the Stanley Cup Final. Their Tennessee fans, inspired by the team, throw catfish onto the ice in Game 1 in Pittsburgh.
It becomes a symbol of their postseason. A rallying fish for an entire city and state falling in love with hockey.
Yep. You go all Gollum on a bloody catfish in the middle of downtown Pittsburgh.
Hockey is incredible and weird and this is why we love it.
