Country music star Keith Urban already had a prime, ice-level view of the Nashville Predators game, but Devan Dubnyk's unbelievable save put the experience over the top.

Urban joined AJ Mleczko Griswold between the benches for the Predators' season opener against the Minnesota Wild on NBCSN Thursday. A longtime Predators fan and Nashville resident, Urban was thrilled with his spot, which gave him a new appreciation for the speed of the game.

The two were chatting about his seventh annual All For The Hall charity concert scheduled for Feb. 10, 2020 at Bridgestone Arena, and his Predators fandom, when Dubnyk stepped up with the highlight reel save on Mikael Granlund.

"Did you see that?" exclaimed play-by-play announcer Mike "Doc" Emrick. "Keith Urban, you won't see a better stop than that."

Mleczko joked that if Urban gave some analysis, maybe they could get some country music out of Mike Milbury.

Urban said the save was "a whole new spin on tuck and roll."
