That's really sad to see. I hope you get over her soon. And I'm so glad to see Nashville win that series. The Ducks are by far my most hated team. I swear all they're missing are Avs sweaters.

The Preds had this win coming. I hope they win round two as well, as long as it isn't vs the Wings.

Was watching a recording of the FSN feed last night when I got home from the game, and heard Pete go "The crowd just crossed 100 decibels again"...were they seriously measuring decibels? If so, I wanna know how loud it was at the loudest point...b/c he said that way early in the game and I know it got a LOT louder.

I'm sure the crowd went well beyond 100dB last night several times. A normal conversation at 3 to 5 feet distance is 60-70dB. If anyone felt some pain in their ears because of the sound (though I'm sure adrenaline canceled a lot of it out) then it was around the 125dB mark. 190ish is the highest it goes if I remember correctly. We have a goal to reach Everyone bring their ear protection

Can anyone make a video collage of the big goals, saves, and commentary from this series? It would be epic.

They played one at the end of the game last night...did anyone record it? I was wondering if it was the in-case-we-lose montage with the "see ya next year" part at the end taken out, haha.

I just posted another thread saying that I have been to lots of concerts and events and have never had my head and ears endure so much pain (of the good kind).

It was ridiculous!

I can, but I need semi-high quality footage if someone has it. If someone does, PM me and we can figure out a way to send and format.

Congratulations, you guys. Great series to watch and nice to see the Preds get over the hump--the team, the fans and the city deserved it.

Sincerely hope that my Canucks get to meet you in the 2nd round. But regardless, congratulations!

120dB is where damage to the ears begins. Extended periods in the 90-110dB range isn't good either. Trust me on this. I've worked in the music biz for way too long not to know this. That's also why so many factory workers have bad hearing, being around the machines all day and they don't even realize they're making themselves deaf. Foam earplugs might be in order when round 2 starts for some of you. Don't want to see anyone lose their hearing, even for the Preds.

-------------------------------------------------------

I am a veteran sports fan. Rapid fan of the big four sports for 47 years. Stay with my teams for better or worse. Only change when I move or new team is established. MLB: Mets; NFL Jets with secondary for the Titans; NBA: Knicks; NHL: Rangers then Islanders then Whalers then Preds. Last Championship was the Mets in 1986 ( .. "it gets by Buckner and the Mets win!!!").

The drama of being a true sports fan is emotional and deep. You intellectually know you're likely to ultimately lose but hope carries you to the edge, never letting go into the last out or the last tick of the game clock. Since the odds of losing are overwhelming, a smart person would contend its fools gold. Why bother? Why put yourself out there when you know they will let you down AGAIN? Why invest all that mental energy and time?

Last night is why!! Years of riding the emotional rollercoaster and having it de-rail every year is worth "THAT MOMENT". That rush you felt when Weber's shot found the back of the net. That spike in blood pressure when Toots finds Smitty and the puck is in.

You will always remember where you were last night. Its not the Stanley Cup but its an undeniable "MOMENT". You will file it in your Sports Hope Chest along side Leggie's shorty in Game 3 against the Wings in our first ever home playoff game.

Remember how you felt right after Game 5 last year. Devastated as a word does not have the range and depth to describe how it felt. It is the reverse world Dark Side of the way you feel now.

And so goes the journey of a REAL sports fan. Last night reminded us why we care. There will be dark days in the future. We may not even win this series. If we do, last night will become legendary. If we lose, it'll still be special.

In a world of huge choices in media and entertainment, there are fewer events or happenings that create "community". Everyone today has it their way. We splinter off into different rooms to watch TV, spend hours in Facebook/Twitter and punching on our smart phones. We no longer come together and experience the same thing in large numbers. That involves compromise, and why compromise when we can have exactly what we want when we want it.

We have a really nice theater room in our house. Huge screen, nice reclining chairs, surround digital. The ultimate Man Cave for sports watching. Watched Game 2 there and lost so when Game 5 was coming we decided we couldn't watch it in isolation. So we went to the Brewhouse South in Franklin. Figured it we lost it would be easier with more company.

With Pred fans hanging from the rafters, the game unfolded into a massive Predfest. In a Nashville world where you have to tell most sports bars what channel the Preds are on and beg to have it put on the big screen, this viewing party had it on ALL screens. ALL the servers had pred shirts on. Even the band refrained from playing until the game was over.

When Weber scored, it was a slice of Bridgestone. When Smitty scored, people were diving on people they didn't know. Wore a preds shirt today. Everywhere I went, people are stopping me and saying something in solidarity about the game. Its as if we're one. Last night created "community". Remaining tickets on ticketmaster got sucked up faster than a weber slap shot. Tomorrow will be rock concert. People who don't know each other will smile, talk to each other, and hug. You're catch each other in a glance, with your pred stuff on, and even without words, you'll know. You'll know you're feeling the same feeling because you lived the same MOMENT.

Moral of this story to all young Pred fans, and sports fans in general: CARING IS WORTH IT. ALL THE DISAPPOINTMENTS ARE WORTH THE MOMENT. DON'T EVER STOP CARING TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM FURTHER PAIN, BECAUSE WHEN YOU EXPERIENCE THAT FEELING YOU HAD WHEN SMITTY SCORED, ITS LIKE NO OTHER.

NHL Network just made a "Make History" commercial out of last night win. Its on Pred TV. It sends chills. Those chills are a product of caring.

The 1973 Mets had a spontaneous slogan coined by Tug Mcgraw (Tim's Dad and Mets Relief Pitcher) . "Ya Gotta Believe". Mets went from last to first in September and won the National League. That always stayed with me. It summarizes how to be a sports fan for your team. When you believe and they let you down, it hurts.

But when you believe and they win, like 1:50 into OT, its like a drug when you're an addict. You'll do anything to feel it again.

For the Pred Addicts, our next "fix" will be tomorrow at about 7:45. The horn will go off, tehhe music will blare. You'll be hugging everyone around you, you'll watch the hand shake line as a winner for the first time, and you'll be a rock star at work Monday as the casual fans will wanna be you.

...... and this is why we care.

If you use mozilla firefox, you can get an add-on that lets you rip the videos off of youtube/nhl.com/etc. I have one downloadhelper that works fine for either....Not sure if that helps(?!?)

Sorry I couldn't be here yesterday, I had Easter stuff to do, and the game wasn't even on VS

Anyway, it was still awesome. I was watching the Hawks and the Nucks trying to get updates. I was going crazy cause I knew it was 3-2 but I had no idea what was going on besides that. When they cut to a game update with less than 30 seconds left my heart sank cause I was thinking "oh **** they tied it" and when I saw the empty netter go in I went ballistic in my aunt's living room

It was a great win for the Preds, their fans, and the sport.

I haven't been able to get that to work on NHL.com. I have gamecenter live, but still no luck.

They do upload highlights to YT, but I was hoping to get full games. I'll see what I find. If no luck, I may down the highlights from YT and come up with something.

Amen brother.

ILILI is my dad, and due to his veteran history of cheering for sports teams who suck, he has talked me down off the ledge many times. The Preds are my first foray into hardcore sports fandom, and everything he's said to me in the past when I was so fed up with the team is so true...this is what makes it all worth it.

And the sense of community is really awesome. The whole city is embracing the Preds. It's amazing to watch!
