Canadian hockey team on the road to Nashville

Besides having the Blackhawks, Coyotes and Red Wings coming to Nashville this week, a truly special hockey team is on the road to Music City, and they’re getting ready for a major showdown.  This from the Timmins Daily Press of Timmins, Ontario:

The Northern Allied Steelers atom ‘A’ team of the Timmins Minor Hockey Association are on the road trip of a lifetime.

The team’s 14 players are headed by bus to Nashville, Tenn., to watch Steve Sullivan and the Nashville Predators in not one, but two NHL games.

The Steelers will not only be specatators, but they will also put on their own show in three games against other atom teams from the Nashville area.

Steelers coach Gary Sullivan, brother of Predators player Steve Sullivan, said it was always a goal to give local kids the opportunity to see the southern team in action.

So Mirtle, are you carrying their bags or something?  The timing here is awfully coincidental…
