11:08 AM ET 08.17 | The Nashville Predators adjusted the way tickets for games against the Chicago Blackhawks are purchased next season in order to limit the number of Chicago fans in Bridgestone Arena. Some have labeled the effort: "Keep the red out." The Predators recently announced they will not sell single-game tickets to their three home games (Nov. 16, Dec. 17 and April 12) against the Stanley Cup champions. To attend those games, fans will have to purchase tickets to a second game as well. "Our objective is to give our team the best home-ice advantage each and every game," said Gerry Helper, Predators vice president of hockey communications and public relations, by phone Wednesday. "Our ticket plans benefit and appreciate our ticket holders by giving them the best possible pricing, sales and availability, so they can have the chance to purchase these tickets before anyone else, whether they're from Nashville, Chicago or Timbuktu."

LMFAO - Why haven't the Sens and Habs figured this out?

Being in Tennessee, it's a good thing they don't have a 'Keep the Rednecks Out' plan

The Preds have to give away tickets with the purchase of a quart of milk at Piggly Wiggly, so what's this all about?

LOL - You'd be able to fire a cannon in any direction in the Bridgestone Arena and not hurt anybody.

Speaking of the Bridgestone Arena I'm guessing blowouts aren't welcome there.

Muhfuggahs. I had planned on coming from Timbuktu. But I'll be dammed if I'm coming now.

OK that's funny. I guess they have seen the Joe when the Leafs visit the Wings.
