The Stanley Cup playoffs start tonight as the Nashville Predators host the Colorado Avalanche. The puck will drop in Bridgestone Arena at 8:30 p.m. The Predators finished an historic regular season with a 53-18 record. Last year the Predators finished 41-29. If you are planning to go to Nashville for the game tonight, expect plenty to do with events around the arena, but you should also anticipate high traffic volumes.
