AAC To Open Doors For Stars Playoff Game Early Due To Weather

April 17, 2019 - 12:13 pm

DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) - The American Airlines Center is set to open the doors early for the NHL playoff game betweet the Nashville Predators and the Dallas Stars tonight due to the weather. 

AAC will open the club Doors at 4:30pm and all doors will be open by 5:30pm, before the scheduled 7:00pm start time. 

At 5-foot-6, Predators center Rocco Grimaldi is one of the shortest players in the NHL. He's certainly coming up big in this series, scoring in consecutive games.

After going into the lineup for Game 2 — filling in when 6-6 center Brian Boyle had an appendix issue following Game 1 — Grimaldi had his first career playoff goal Saturday with a stick coincidentally named "Frankie" — on the three-year anniversary of the death of his grandfather Frank. He added another goal, with a different stick, in Game 3.
