Kingerski: The Story I Didn’t Report



Welcome to the first in a series of personal stories and experiences from the PHN staff. Shelly, Matt and I will be sharing personal anecdotes from our travels and our combined 60 years in this crazy business.

Since the playoffs begin today, I’ll start at the end of last year’s playoffs and the day I turned an entire city against me.

Some of you may remember the infamy I achieved in Nashville during the 2017 Stanley Cup Final. Some of you might still not like me.

I’m sorry.

It was me who wrote the Nashville Predators and the Bridgestone Arena augmented the crowd noise story. It was a little blurb at the bottom of an analysis piece on Matt Murray which proved to be spot on (I wrote that Murray needed to steal a game. He one-upped me–he stole two).

Injured? You need a lawyer. Call Joshua R. Lamm.

Writing about the crowd noise was sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek because I didn’t think it was a big deal. As long as it didn’t affect play, Nashville was free to do whatever they wanted. I thought my little sect of readers might enjoy a behind the scenes tidbit. And, I didn’t think that many people would read it.

Boy, I had no idea what was coming.
