Commemorative jerseys, one of the largest crowds in NHL history and a host of impressive honky-tonk pageantry are just a few of the attractions on display as the Nashville Predators host their first-ever away game of the NHL regular season against the Tampa Bay Lightning. It promises to be one of the best shows of the season, so read on as we explain how to watch the NHL Stadium Series live stream online wherever you are.
The Preds are on track for a playoff spot, but things have gotten a little rocky lately. John Hynes’ men had a tough February as their 6-4 win over the Panthers snapped a four-game losing streak, including particularly damaging losses to the Stars and Jets.

Of course, there’s a lot more to look forward to besides the battle on the ice. Country music stars Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley will perform live at Nissan Stadium, and there must be a tribute to Pekka Rinne, legendary Smashville goaltender and all-time leader in victories whose jersey no. °35 was retired on Thursday.
