The Nashville Predators host the Columbus Blue Jackets Saturday night at the Bridgestone Arena.
The puck drops at 7 p.m. but some fans camped out overnight in hopes of getting a ticket to the sold out game.
Dozens of people lined up outside of Bridgestone Arena in hopes of getting a lottery ticket. One hundred upper-level tickets were made available for just $10 each.
While there was no need to wait in line, fans still braved the cold temperatures.
Blake from Cookeville was first in line, arriving 11 hours before ticket booths opened.
"We've been waiting since [the Predators] got eliminated last year in the playoffs, we've been wanting our hockey fix so cold weather isn't really going to stop us from getting that," Blake told Nashville's News 2.
He said he came prepared for the cold temps, adding, "We have like three Snuggies, two or three sleeping bags, 10 layers of clothes so we are pretty set."
The fun begins around 4 p.m. with a gold carpet entrance for all Nashville Predators players, coaches and broadcasters.
Directly following the Smashville-style entrance is a plaza party with live music, inflatable games, visits from Gnash and the ladies of Smashville and more.
The Predators will play 48 games this shortened season.
