Commemorative jerseys, one of the biggest crowds in NHL history, and a whole load of awesome honky-tonk pageantry are just some of the attractions on show as the Nashville Predators host their first ever outdoor NHL regular season game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. It promises to be one of the best spectacles 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 course for a spot in the playoffs, but things have become a little rocky of late. John Hynes’ men have had a tough February, their 6-4 victory over the Panthers ending a run of four straight defeats, including particularly damaging ones against the Stars and Jets.
That they face the reigning champions on what should be a day of celebration in Nashville could be a blessing or a curse. The Bolts have won three in a row since falling to the all-conquering Avalanche, and will be well-rested for their trip north.
Of course, there’s plenty more to look forward to besides the battle on the ice. Country music stars Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley will be performing live at Nissan Stadium, and there’s got to be a tribute to Pekka Rinne, Smashville’s legendary goaltender and all-time leader in wins whose No. 35 jersey was retired on Thursday.

Unfortunately, if you try to watch your domestic coverage of the 2022 NHL Stadium Series from somewhere outside your home country, you’ll soon find a problem – geo-blocking.

Can I watch 2022 NHL Stadium Series in Australia?
Foxtel channel ESPN and the excellent sports streaming service Kayo Sports are usually the places to watch the NHL Down Under, but sadly there’s no confirmed broadcaster for the 2022 NHL Stadium Series in Australia at the time of writing.
The only alternative is to use one of the best VPN service providers to tap into coverage from another nation, as described above.
The software is generally ideal for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location – and all through a safe, encrypted connection. But do bear in mind that most paid streaming services do require a credit card based in the country the service is from.
