If you were planning on taking a trip down to Florida for Games 1 and 2 of the Eastern Conference Final...think again!
The Tampa Bay Lightning released a statement saying that they have amended its ticket policy for the next round of the playoffs, barring anyone without a Florida Zip code from buying tickets through the team or its official partner, Ticketmaster.
Well, that stinks. I guess if you LIVE in Florida and are a Caps fan, then you are all set. But don't think about booking that flight to Amalie Arena so fast.
Oh, and if you DO happen to score tickets to the game, you may want be be aware of the dress code.
According to the Lightning website, Capitals fans will not be allowed to wear red or anything with the team's logo if their seats are in the Lightning's Lexus Lounge, which includes seats against the glass, or in the Chase Club luxury suites. Instead, they will have to wear neutral colors.
“Fans wearing visiting team-branded apparel will be asked to remove such apparel while in these areas,” the team said.
The Capitals and Lightning face off in the Eastern Conference Final to determine who heads to the Stanley Cup Final.
It is the Caps first appearance in 20 years.

Oh, and to be fair and balanced, the Capitals are doing the same thing as well:
