1. Loudest House in the NHL

The biggest piece to the Carolina Hurricanes’ success tonight is none other than the Caniacs themselves.

The Nashville Predators are under a strange delusion that the Bridgestone Arena is the loudest arena in the NHL, but they are (objectively and subjectively) incorrect.

The PNC Arena, thanks to the Caniacs, is far and away the loudest house in the NHL, bar none. I can’t recall a time or place that was so loud, I could feel my skin vibrating. It’s finally time to bring the noise in the playoffs once again, and I know those of you in attendance won’t disappoint.

I know capacity hasn’t increased back to 100% yet, and likely won’t for some time, but those of you that are lucky enough to be in attendance tonight, scream extra loud for those of us watching along at home and show the Predators what “Take Warning” really means.
