The Nashville Predators easily have one of the best playoff atmospheres in all of sports.

Bridgestone arena is loud and raucous from puck drop to the final horn.

Winnipeg Jets captain Blake Wheeler, however, appeared to throw some shade at the Preds’ home crowd on Tuesday night after the Jets’ game three win in Winnipeg.

This is a completely absurd statement from Wheeler.

When the Jets were down early to the Preds on Tuesday night, you could’ve heard a pin drop in Winnipeg.

And I was far from the only one to notice how quiet it was at Bell MTS Place.

Maybe Wheeler is just upset the Jets don’t have a Taylor Lewan like figure to fire up the crowd.

The Jets might have a 2-1 series lead at the moment, but it’s clear to everyone outside of Winnipeg that Smashville has the better playoff atmosphere.

  1. Born Salty have you been smoking some funny stuff? First we here in Manitoba ( That’s a province in Canada incase you didn’t know ) are the best hockey fans on the planet. Second we noticed a few hundred outside of your arena but in Winnipeg there was almost 20000 people outside of the rink and 15000 inside along with a military flyby. Everyone dressed in white representing a white out. We also have almost all of the hockey fans in our country pulling for the Jets. we don’t play drums in the stands and throw cat fish on the ice or waist good beer pouring them over a fish. It’s been a very long time since we had a chance to go crazy for our hockey team so I’m afraid you atmosphere doesn’t even come close to ours.
