For the first time ever, Bridgestone Arena will host a Western Conference Final game.

The stakes keep getting higher as the Nashville Predators continue to make franchise history.

Tuesday night’s Game 3 is a sell-out. A watch party is set to begin outside the arena at 6:30 p.m.

The Predators’ series against the Anaheim Ducks is currently tied at 1-1.

Home ice has been huge for the Predators. They have not lost at Bridgestone Arena in these playoffs.

“It escalates each time, how loud it gets. It’s the best building in the NHL. I’m not biased. I asked a couple guys, they say the same thing,” said Colin Wilson, who has a goal and an assist in eight playoff games.

“I think that’s the playoffs. The further you get, the more exciting it gets for everybody. It’s good for the state of Tennessee, our fans, our players,” said Predators head coach Peter Laviolette.

Game 3 begins at 7 p.m.
