It looks like the Nashville Predators have started a trend.
In an effort to reduce the number of Blackhawks fans in Nashville, the Predators implemented new ticketing policies meant to stop Chicago fans from purchasing single-game tickets when the Blackhawks are in town.
This, of course — as judged by the comments left on CSNChicago.com — gave many Blackhawks fans additional motivation to see a game in Nashville. And now they'll have to do the same in St. Louis since the Blues have decided to hop on the bandwagon and put a similar ban on single-game ticket sales when the defending Stanley Cup champions come to town.

But hey, no one ever said anything about the team's white jerseys.
