When discussing the most popular American hockey teams, a few that come to mind are the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Boston Bruins, and the Chicago Blackhawks. But after this season, it appears that a new contender is in town.

Road to the Stanley Cup

Like most sports, once a team has had a taste for the possibility of victory, they’re more determined than ever to ensure that they’re the last ones standing in the next match. Following their loss of the Stanley Cup, the Nashville Predators have wasted no time in preparing for next season. With the incredible skill of goaltender Pekka Rinne, the team is confident that they’ll make it to the top all over again.

 Due to an injury that had him out for the final games of last season, centerman Ryan Johansen is eager to get healed up and back on the ice. And with captain Mike Fisher leading them down the road, the Preds are sure to secure their chance at the Stanley Cup once again.

A Passionate Fan Base

After years of longing for a reason to get hockey-obsessed, the fans in Nashville turned out in hoards to support their team during the 2016-2017 season.

With the national recognition that the Preds have received, Nashville has only gotten more lively and boisterous. Their hope and Southern hospitality has every fan ready for October.

A Different Kind of Hockey Town

What happens when you bring hockey to a Southern town? Well, some pretty amazing things. The blending of this city with ice hockey has created unique traditions that can only come from letting a relationship build organically.

For starters, the fans throw catfish on the ice after the national anthem for good luck. The catfish represents the town’s roots and their appreciation of all things wild and uncommon. On top of that, the jerseys are embroidered with piano keys on the inside collar, hailing the Music City’s reason for being.

Needless to say, the Nashville Predators have given this town a rip-roaring, ice hockey-loving atmosphere that’s sure to last a lifetime. So, when the Preds play their first game this fall, be sure to tune in to see all the heart-pounding action.

When you own a car, no matter the brand, size or style, you have to stay on top of routine maintenance services in order to keep it in good running condition. While this may seem pretty straight forward, many car owners make mistakes when it comes to the maintenance they provide for their cars. It's not that anyone intends to not service their car correctly, but it isn't always easy to have preventative maintenance performed regularly. A lack of time, a lack of money... Whatever the reason, life happens and our cars can take a backseat to other “more important” things.

Luckily, we're here to help! To help you better prioritize and plan your car's maintenance services, here is a list of the top three automotive maintenance mistakes one can make and how to avoid them.

Ignoring the Check Engine Light

As you know, your car has a number of warning lights that will spring to life on your dashboard to draw your attention to potential problems that are happening. Unfortunately, warning lights can be all too easy to ignore – even when it's the check engine light. This is because if your car appears to be running fine, a simple warning light is easy to dismiss. Yes, there is always a chance that a warning light, even the check engine light, doesn't mean there is a problem. But, be that as it may, there is also always a chance that a warning light could mean big trouble's ahead.

If your check engine light comes on, don't ignore it! To best avoid potentially serious and costly problems, have your car checked by a professional as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the higher the risk of more extensive damage and repair costs.

Skipping Oil Changes

All cars require one very important thing to run – motor oil. This is why having your car's oil changed regularly is of utmost importance. Even though oil changes only take a few minutes and are also on the low-end in terms of costs for automotive maintenance services, many go much longer than they should between oil changes. In fact, some even ignore changing it altogether. Well, we're here to tell you that skipping, or altogether avoiding, oil changes is a costly mistake. Here's why:

Your car's engine needs motor oil to lubricate all of its important parts. Without a continuous supply of fresh oil, engine parts bump and scratch against each other until they ultimately become damaged and seize up. Another reason your car's engine needs motor oil is to help cool it down. Engines get incredibly hot, and without oil to help draw some of this heat away, the engine will burn up. Engine repairs are time-consuming, expensive, and something you definitely don't want to deal with. So be smart and ensure you have your car's oil changed as often as your owner's manual, or a trusted mechanic, states.

Not Checking Fluids

Cars are made up of many components – large and small. Each acts as a vital element that's needed in order to keep your car functioning as it should. Sure, you probably know your car needs fluids like motor oil and gasoline, but there are several other fluids that need to be checked, replaced, and/or topped off. They include: transmission fluid, engine coolant, power steering fluid, and brake fluid. By checking all fluid levels and having them serviced as recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer, you will avoid leaks, as well as keep your car running properly.

Having a car may seem like no big deal, but if you've ever actually owned one, you know this is far from true. For starters, you have to pay your monthly payments and drive with great care to avoid fender benders and other accidents. Other important aspects of owning a car include providing it with routine maintenance and repairing any problems it may have, quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, maintaining your vehicle can prove more difficult than anticipated at times. After all, life is busy and money can be tight – both reasons that vital maintenance services can be pushed aside or completely ignored. But let it be known, in order for your car to work properly, preventative maintenance is required. This blog will inform you about the tire maintenance your car requires to keep you safe on the road.

Check Tire Pressure

One of the easiest maintenance services you can provide your car with is to check the tires for proper air pressure. But as easy as this service is, it is also one of the most ignored. A simple glance at your tires will tell you if you have a flat, but this doesn't ensure they are properly inflated with the correct air pressure. An inadequate supply of air can cause your car to not handle as well when driving, and it can also make fuel economy decrease, causing time and money to be wasted on fill-ups.

There are a number of reasons why tires lose air pressure, like running over potholes. A change in the temperature outside also has a negative effect on tire pressure. To avoid a flat tire, poor gas mileage and other problems, check your tires at least once a month to ensure they are properly inflated. Also check them before any trip that will have your car running for over an hour.

Inspect Tire Treads

As important as it is to keep your tires properly inflated, it is just as crucial to ensure they have good treads. So what exactly are tire treads, and what purpose do they serve? If you look at your tires, you will notice there are deep grooves that encircle their exterior. These grooves, or dents, are actually treads. No, treads aren't just for looks; they really do serve a purpose. And it's important to check your treads on a regular basis.

The purpose of treads is to help your tires grip the road. Without adequate tread depth, tires lack the traction they require to keep you safe. Instead of gripping the roadways, they will slip – especially in wet, icy or snowy conditions. For the average driver, tire treads should last several years. Once they run out, though, tires should be replaced quickly to avoid dangerous problems on the road.

Don't Ignore TPMS Light

If you own a car, you know that it comes with many different warning lights that will ignite in order to inform you of a potential problem. But did you know that one of these lights is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)? The TPMS light serves as a warning system that informs you when one or more of your tires is deflated beyond what is considered safe by your vehicle's manufacturer. If this light activates while driving, you should pull over somewhere safe – preferably the nearest gas station – and check your tires. If your tires are, in fact, losing air, go ahead and add more. If you have a flat tire, follow the necessary steps to replace it with a spare. If your TPMS indicates a loss of air pressure but when you check your tires they prove to be fine, then you may need a TPMS sensor replacement.
