The anticipation of the 2013 NHL schedule was palpable for Nashville Predators fans. Not only are they excited to get hockey back in Music City but they are chomping at the bit to find out when former fan favorites Jordin Tootoo and Ryan Suter will get to feel (er… hear) their wrath.

Well the wait is over!

Tootoo and the Detroit Red Wings will be in Nashville on Tuesday, February 19 and Sunday, April 14. As far as Suter and the Minnesota Wild go, they’ll visit Music City only once: Saturday, March 9.

Other key home scheduling notes include opening night against the Columbus Blue Jackets, the chance to exact a certain measure of revenge on the Phoenix Coyotes (the team that ended their season last year) on Valentine’s Day as well as March 28, and the opportunity to take part in the rare back-to-back-nights at home twice. The first set coming on March 8 and 9 against the Edmonton Oilers and Minnesota Wild, respectively, and the second set coming against the Wings on April 14 and the Vancouver Canucks on April 15.

The complete schedule is below.
