National Hockey League

The best spot to root for the Nashville Predators is Bridgestone Arena. But what about if the Preds are playing on the road? Or what if you can’t get (or afford) tickets at the arena?

The 2017 National Hockey League Stanley Cup Finals will begin Monday 29 May in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with the Nashville Predators taking on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The first two games will be played at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh because the Penguins, champions of the Eastern Conference, performed better during the regular-season than the Predators, champions of the Western Conference.

The second and third games of the best of seven Stanley Cup series will be played at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

If needed, the fifth game will be played in Pittsburgh, the sixth game will be played in Nashville, and the seventh game will be played in Pittsburgh.
