The unsung heroes of the Nashville Predators four game sweep of the Chicago Blackhawks may have been a pair of hats.

According to country singer Dierks Bentley, as soon as he and fellow artist Luke Bryan, who did a stellar version of the "Star-Spangled Banner" before the game began, they were rally hats.

Both Bentley and Bryan put cowboy hats that read "Smashville" across the front. Bentley said in his Instagram post that as soon as they donned the headwear, the Predators scored twice.

"I don't think we should take all the credit but I will say once @lukebryan and I put these hats on the @nhlpreds scored two goals in a row! Just sayin. #GoPreds" Bentley posted on Instagram.

Better remember those hats for the next round, fellas.
