Due to a slow news week for the Nashville Predators, I thought about coming up with a fun post that includes a Top 5 and fan reaction. This Top 5 topic is a about home games. Read my Top 5 home games for the Predators, then give me your top 5 in the comments after the jump.

5. Edmonton Oilers: Tuesday, November 27, 2012 at 7 PM

Ah, the early games of the season where is nice to just kick back and enjoy the hockey game. That is what you will just do when people are watching the highly skilled offensive team they have. With Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Nail Yakupov, Jordan Eberle and Taylor Hall on one team, you just have to watch and see how great these players will be one day.

Mark this game on you calender people. You want to see young talent? Well, here it is.

4. Minnesota Wild: Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 7 PM

This game will be the last meeting between the Predators and the Wild and Suter for the rest of the regular season. As you can read in the number two game, Suter will not be well-liked in Nashville on game day.

These two teams could be battling it out for a playoff spot in early March. This game is most likely going to have more meaning than the game in December. The hard feelings towards Suter is not gone, but now the focus is winning. In the heat of a playoff spot, the Predators can't be too emotional.

3. Philadelphia Flyers: Thursday, December 27, 2012 at 7 PM

When the Philadelphia Flyers come to town, it is always fun to watch. Unfortunately, the last two times they came to Nashville, I have been out of town and have only watch the replays. There are always hard hitting, physical and fast paced games, the best games to watch. 

Also, it is great to see former Predators, Scott Hartnell and Kimmo Timonen play. The talent the Flyers have is spectacular and keeps you on the edge of your seat.


2. Minnesota Wild: Saturday, December 1, 2012 at 7 PM 

Ever since Ryan Suter has signed with the Minnesota Wild with Zach Parise, Preds fans have had this game circled on their calender. Once Suter steps onto the ice Saturday night, in front of a sold-out crowd, he will anything but kind words yelled at him. 

This will be the first meeting between the two teams and the first time Suter will play against the Nashville Predators. You can guarantee that it will not be a friendly meeting between the fans and Suter at the start of the month.

1. Detroit Red Wings: Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 7 PM

This is the last home game of the regular season and fan appreciation night. But what a better opponent to close out the regular season at Bridgestone Arena than the hated rivals of the Detroit Red Wings. Bridgestone Arena will be a guaranteed packed house with zero seats available.

With "fan favorite", Jordin Tootoo playing with the Red Wings, it adds a bit more spice into the match-up that was already there. Smashville doesn't like Tootoo now, and will be verbally attacking him through chants.

So, let's round this out on why this is the best home game of the season. A) Playing against the Detroit Red Wings, B) Fan Appreciation Night and C) Jordin Tootoo is on the rival's team. That sounds like a great night to me.
