Tickets to the Western Conference final are going for $200-$400 in Nashville.

Preds fans looking to score cheaper seats for Tuesday's game can download the Predators app before 10 a.m. Tuesday -- that's when the team will release 100 tickets for just $15 each.

Nashville Predators fans, who want to experience the best hockey has to offer throughout the playoffs, will have to fork over the dough in order to do it.

Prices on Ticketmaster and StubHub fall in similar price ranges, but the Preds organization encourages fans to purchase through one source.

"The best way to get tickets is to go or, which links back to Ticketmaster," Nat Harden, Senior VP in Ticket Sales said. "That's really the only way to guarantee a valid ticket to Game 3 and 4."

"We only have 17,000 seats in the building and there's 100,000 people that want to come to the game," Harden said. "The ticket is in such high demand."

John Cayetano is from New Jersey. He's in town with a friend visiting his sister who lives in Nashville. The three want to go to tomorrow's game, but don't have tickets.

"We've been checking sites like Craigslist," Cayetano said. "It's sketchy to try and find tickets that are good to go into games."

The NHL has sent a warning to fans to be aware of people attempting to sell counterfeit tickets, especially during the playoffs.
