Nashville, Tenn. (April 11, 2011) – The Nashville Predators will host Games Three and Four of their 2011 Western Conference Quarterfinals series with the Anaheim Ducks, presented locally by Fifth Third Bank, starting next week at Bridgestone Arena with Game Three, presented by Land Rover Nashville, on Sunday, April 17 at 5 p.m., Game Four, presented by Tennessee Lottery, scheduled for Wednesday, April 20 at 7:30 p.m. and Game Six, presented by Fifth Third Bank, on Wednesday, April 24 (if necessary).

“After punching our ticket for our sixth playoff appearance in the past seven seasons, now is the time we are asking all residents of Smashville to ‘Stand With Us,’” Nashville Predators Chief Executive Officer Jeff Cogen said. “There’s nothing more thrilling than a live Stanley Cup Playoff game and nothing gets our players more excited than the electricity of our fans at Bridgestone Arena on their feet and cheering. With team MVP Pekka Rinne in net and All-Stars Shea Weber and Ryan Suter holding down the blue line, this team is poised to make a deep playoff run. You won’t want to miss a minute of this action.”
