The 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs mark the second-straight season and ninth time overall that the club has reached the postseason. Stanley Cup Playoff series are best of seven and scheduled to be played in a 2-2-1-1-1 format, with the first round slated to begin on Wednesday, April 13. The top three teams in each division will make up the first 12 teams in the playoffs and the remaining four spots will be filled by the next two highest-placed finishers in each conference, regardless of division, in wild card slots. The first round will see the top division team take on the wild-card team with the lesser record and the wild card team with the better record will play the remaining divisional winner.
So far in 2015-16, the Predators have amassed a 39-26-13 record and currently hold the first Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. The team is having a record season at the box office, having sold out a franchise-record 32 games, with over 620,000 visitors at Bridgestone Arena during the regular season.
Now with three home games remaining in the 2015-16 season, fans can still take advantage of the team’s Playoff Bound Pack. With the promotion, fans have the option of purchasing tickets to two of the remaining home contests (Tonight vs. San Jose Sharks; April 5 vs. Colorado Avalanche; March 7 vs. Arizona Coyotes) and be among the first group to purchase tickets for the first two home games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. In addition, fans who make their first payment for 2016-17 full season tickets can receive up to 76 percent off of Round One tickets for this year’s Stanley Cup Playoffs.
