2. December 8th vs. Nashville Predators

The Lightning and the Nashville Predators have developed a fun rivalry in the last few seasons after playing in the Central Division during the 2021 season and becoming the heartbeat of hockey in the south.

When the Lightning and Predators met outdoors at Nissan Stadium in Nashville for the 2022 NHL Stadium series, the two teams but on a special showcase of how big hockey has become in non-traditional markets.

This year’s meeting in Tampa will have another twist to it as it will be the first game back in Tampa for Ryan McDonagh after being traded to the Predators on July 3rd.
