With Nashville completing the series last night, it is official. A Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators Second Round matchup is set to take place after the completion of the remaining First Round series.
In an attempt to give the Predators even more of a home ice advantage, Nashville is restricting ticket sales to people only from the Nashville Predators television viewing area.
Those states are Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.
Residency will be determined by the zip code associated with the credit card used for payment.
As much as this seems like cheating, Nashville also did this last year in the Stanley Cup Final, along with Tampa Bay blocking Chicago fans in 2015.
This is simply just how teams have such a home ice advantage, which is a game changer in the playoffs for any sport.
