from the Tennessean,
Predators Vice President Steve Violetta said the team will exercise its right to black out Sunday's playoff game on local television in Nashville unless about 1,600 tickets are sold by tomorrow at 11 a.m. Violetta said the Predators still had about 2,600 tickets remaining to the game as of yesterday afternoon. He wants 1,600 sold by tomorrow at 11, when he has to notify OLN and the NHL of the team's decision. "I've talked to both OLN and the NHL and obviously they'd both prefer that we lift the blackout in Nashville because it would make the ratings better,'' Violetta said. "But they both support us, as much as it pains everyone.
