Even with no fans physically in the arena, hockey enthusiasts are still showing their support by purchasing tickets to win the in-game lottery prize.

The 50/50 ticket fever follows a week of ticket sales producing higher and higher jackpots. On Wednesday, the jackpot hit $5 million after only five hours of ticket sales.

Tickets can be purchased on the Edmonton Oilers website — if you can get through, that is.
