Nashville, Tenn. (April 28, 2011) – The Nashville Predators will host Games Three and Four of their 2011 Western Conference Semifinals series with the Vancouver Canucks, presented locally by Fifth Third Bank, next week at Bridgestone Arena with Game Three on Tuesday, May 3 at 8 p.m. and Game Four scheduled for Thursday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m., with Game Six taking place on Monday, May 9 (if necessary, times tbd). Doors will open two and a half hours prior to each contest with plaza parties taking place three hours prior to faceoff (weather permitting).
Individual tickets are available for all possible second-round games and can be purchased at nashvillepredators.com, by calling 615-770-PUCK (7825), stopping by the Bridgestone Arena box office, all Ticketmaster outlets or by visiting ticketmaster.com. Ticket prices start at just $32 per game. For the second round, the Predators will again utilize value-based pricing; meaning that prices will fluctuate with demand. Tickets for all future rounds of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs will go on sale upon the completion of each round.
After successfully “golding out” Bridgestone Arena last round, the Nashville Predators want to keep the gold going, with all fans in attendance at Game Three receiving gold rally towels courtesy of AT&T and gold “Stand With Us” t-shirts provided by Hunt Brothers Pizza, GooGoo Cluster, Land Rover Nashville and Fifth Third Bank. Attendees of Game Four will receive a cheering fan presented by Bridgestone and a gold “Stand With Us” t-shirt courtesy of Toyota, Tennessee Lottery and Bridgestone.
“We really set the tone last month with everyone waving gold rally towels during our games,” Nashville Predators Chief Executive Officer Jeff Cogen said. “Everyone from players to coaches to fans noticed how special the environment was in Bridgestone Arena – especially during those amazing standing ovations. We want to take it one step further by instituting a ‘gold out’ for Games Three and Four at Bridgestone Arena. The Predators will be providing ‘Stand With Us’ t-shirts and towels but we still encourage fans to go gold all on their own!”
The Predators and Canucks will kick off the series, their first ever postseason matchup, and the Predators first foray into the Western Conference Semifinals, tonight at Rogers Arena in Vancouver at 8 p.m. CT. Game Two is scheduled for Saturday, April 30 at 8 p.m. CT in Vancouver. Both games will be televised nationally on VERSUS (Comcast channel 206 HD, 50 SD).
