A Nashville Predators fan flew from Pennsylvania to Tennessee on Thursday, only to realize the team was on the road that night.

Sydney Sanders told Kristopher Martel of FOX Sports Tennessee she bought tickets to watch the Predators take on the New Jersey Devils about a week in advance, but failed to look at where the game was being played.

"All I did is look up the Predators schedule and see what teams they were playing," Sanders said. "I saw the day before my birthday they were playing the Devils. I thought, 'Oh cool, I'll go to Nashville and catch a game.' I'm trying to go to every NHL arena, so I figured I'm finally going to get Bridgestone (Arena) off the list.

"I then found out the game was in Newark, which is like two hours away from where I live, driving. Instead, I flew two hours away from home to watch an away game."

Sanders' trip wasn't a complete waste. After she tweeted about her mistake, the Predators gave her a signed puck, rally towel, scarf, luggage tag, and schedule to take home with her.
