TAMPA — Tickets for the Lightning-Predators Stadium Series game in February in Nashville will go on sale Thursday at 11 a.m., the NHL announced Wednesday.

The teams will play at Nissan Stadium, home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans on Feb. 26. It will mark the first appearance in an outdoor game in Lightning history.

Fans can purchase tickets online through Ticketmaster. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Lightning defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Victor Hedman talked about the opportunity to play in an outdoor setting during a news conference Wednesday in Nashville. The contest will be the fifth career outdoor game for McDonagh, a longtime New York Ranger before joining the Lightning in 2018.

“Playing outside definitely makes you feel younger,” said McDonagh, 32. “You remember your days as a kid just playing under the light, under the stars.”

It will be the first outdoor game for Hedman, as the Lightning will be the 27th NHL team to participate in such an event.

“I think this stadium holds more than the city where I grew up (Ornskoldsvik, Sweden), so it’ll be different than what I experienced as a kid,” said Hedman, 30. “But it brings back all the memories, the people you grew up with, your friends back home.

“All you wanted to do was play hockey outside in Sweden. We played until dinnertime and then went back out again, and that’s where I grew up loving the sport. I’ve been with the Lightning for 13 years now, and this is going to be one of the highlights, for sure.”

Panthers’ Thornton fined for slash on Katchouk

Panthers forward Joe Thornton was fined $1,875 for his slash on Boris Katchouk during the Lightning’s 4-1 loss Tuesday in Tampa.

Katchouk, Thornton and others were battling for puck possession in front of the benches late in the first period when Katchouk pushed Thornton from behind. Thornton responded with a slash to Katchouk’s groin.

The rookie forward stayed down on the ice for a few moments before skating slowly to the bench and talking with head athletic trainer Tom Mulligan. He returned to play shortly afterward.
