Less than 24 hours after the Nashville Predators host the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night at Bridgestone Arena, a skirmish of similar proportions will take place just up the road.
The Downtown Commons outdoor ice rink in Clarksville, Tennessee, will be the sight, with Montgomery County Mayor Jim Durrett challenging Fort Campbell's Major General Andrew Poppas to a game of broomball, with faceoff set for 6:30 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday.
Members of the Preds Energy Team and GNASH, plus Predators alumni, will be on site to greet fans and cheer on the County and Fort Campbell teams as they do battle on the outdoor rink, with a public skating session to follow.
The event is a perfect opportunity for the Preds to support Clarksville's endeavors to grow the game of hockey, as well as show gratitude toward our nation's armed forces by joining in a friendly game of broomball - with major bragging rights on the line.
The public is invited to wear their Preds gear and attend the game on Wednesday evening, free of charge.
