7 years ago Preds fans invaded St. Louis on several occasions & Chicago too. Strange what winning does to increase your road attendance.

Also what is the explanation for the attendance when Chicago and St. Louis are not playing in Nashville? Let's look at the Blues' home attendance as compared to Nashville this season. Note that the Blues play in a much larger arena with 40+ years of history, competing for the best record in the league, and only average less than 200 more per game

19 St. Louis 33 552,222 16,734 87.4
20 Nashville 36 596,370 16,565 96.8

It is not like home attendance falls completely off the map like St. Louis and Chicago did 7 years ago.
