0 of 4

    The Nashville Predators are on the brink of elimination in the NHL playoffs going into Game 5 tonight at Arena in Glendale, Arizona.

    Nashville's own music talent Taylor Swift will introduce three Predators players to you using her country music.

    There have been several highlights in the Nashville Predators' run towards the Stanley Cup so far. Some of the best moments will be captured with Taylor Swift's words.

    Let's get the music started.

Alexander Radulov: The Story of Us

1 of 4

    Alexander Radulov is one of the most polarizing players in the NHL. Taylor Swift describes him really well in The Story of Us.

    When the Nashville Predators first met Radulov, "sparks flew instantly." It seemed like a perfect couple, and people were saying "they're the lucky ones."

    But today? Radulov exiled to Russia using a jet plane, and the Predators welcomed him back, only to see him miss curfew going to the bar in Arizona.

    All of the sudden, "I don't know what to say, since the twist of fate when it all broke down. And the story of us looks a lot like a tragedy now."

    Enjoy facing the music in the offseason, Radulov.

Pekka Rinne: Mine

2 of 4

    Pekka Rinne was selected No. 258 overall in 2004 NHL entry draft by the Nashville Predators. Rinne's performance all season has granted him recognition as one of the top-three goalies in the league right now, along with Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.

    Rinne was brought to stardom by the Nashville Predators under head coach Barry Trots. He is committed long-term to the franchise for the next seven years with his $49 million contract signing, which starts in the fall of 2012.

    This summer, the Predators have to worry about "the bills to pay," and the possibility of losing Ryan Suter and Shea Weber either this summer or next summer is "hard to take."

    The watch continues for Rinne's Predators team.

Shea Weber: Love Story

3 of 4

    Shea Weber is the captain and the face of the Nashville Predators. He is one of the premier defensemen in the NHL, and his team is still alive in the NHL playoffs matched up with the Phoenix Coyotes.

    In the Love Story, Shea Weber is like Juliet and the Predators are Romeo. The team really would like nothing more than to keep Weber under their arms and have him in a long-term relationship.

    "You'll be the prince, and I'll be the princess." 

    However, the finances are more complicated than that. If Shea Weber wants to go for the money and join a team that spends to the salary cap each and every year, then Romeo may be disappointed.

Honourable Mentions: Ryan Suter

    Ryan Suter joined the Nashville Predators at NHL entry draft in 2003.

    Nashville Predators said, "I was enchanted to meet you," after selecting the big-minute defenseman No. 7 overall in the draft.

    "Please don't be in love with someone else. Please don't have somebody waiting on you."
