NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Saturday night, 200 Fort Campbell soldiers embarked on a mission to see the Predators in action.

Troops were chauffeured from post to Bridgestone arena aboard four massive motor coaches to watch the game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

It was certainly a good night for the soldiers, and as for the Predators, Patric Hornqvist scored two power-play goals to lead the Nashville Predators to a 5-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.
