The Nashville Predators could possibly be the biggest surprise in the NHL this season. They are currently locked into a playoff position with 102 points after 77 games. They have been led by new head coach Peter Laviolette and Vezina Trophy candidate Pekka Rinne. The entire season has gone right for the Preds, who are looking to turn around a bad history in the postseason with a hot finish to the season. They currently own a 2-7 record in postseason series’. They have a chance to get into the postseason with momentum, and change their luck. They have a few home games left on the season that you should do what you can to attend. According to SeatSmart, the home average for the final three home games at Bridgestone Arena is $94.72 on the secondary market.
The Dallas Stars visit the Predators on April 4th in the most expensive game of the month. The Stars are the antithesis of the Nashville Predators this season. They came into the year with Stanley Cup expectations, but never lived up to them. They have superstars like Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, but the back end has let them down time and time again. Despite ranking second in the league in scoring, they are six points out of the playoffs with five games to go. That mostly has to do with the fact that they rank 28th in goals against. The fans are willing to pay for the star power (no pun intended) and also the near guarantee that the Predators are going to be able to score at will. Predators tickets on SeatSmart.com can get you into the arena with two tickets in section 315, Row J for a total of $77. SeatSmart has the best prices for their preferred seating, which in comparison, costs $81.35 on VividSeats.com for the same exact section and row.
The Vancouver Canucks will travel to Nashville on March 31st to take on the Predators in the least expensive home game of the month. The Canucks had about as much expectation as the Predators did this season. While they aren’t guaranteed a playoff spot like the Preds, they are almost certainly going to make it with 93 points going into this game. They were lifted by offseason acquisitions Radim Vrbata and goaltender Ryan Miller. After this game, they will not be able to face off again until the Western Conference Finals, if they were to advance that far. The Preds won both matchups with the Canucks this season, only allowing one goal in each contest. The average price for Predators-Canucks tickets is $61.55 on the secondary market. To get in the door, it will only cost you $21.00.
