Former Predators head coach Barry Trotz got an ovation from the fans during the All-Star game and he responded by blowing them a kiss.
"When you've lived in this community and you know the people, the type of people that live in this community, former players, coaches, the whole city … I've always felt the support in Nashville," said Trotz. "Last year, (coming back) was very emotional and awkward. This year, to come back and see how the Predators have come along as an organization from the first days in '97 … we had a phone and a cord hanging from the roof, and that's how we started. To see it now, it's fantastic. Obviously I've had a history here. One of the things I know about Nashville, Tennessee is that they know how to put on events, major events, and they do it right."
