(WJBK) -

They're rocking out, skating up a sweat and taking a polar plunge - hockey fans in an around Comerica park are doing anything and everything to battle the cold temperatures. That includes checking out the Stanley Cup, which arrived Monday inside one of three heated tents.

The alumni hockey game is Tuesday at Comerica Park and the Winter Classic is Wednesday and The Big House. Temperatures are expected to be in the teens and single digits both days.

Doctor Steven Rivera from Providence Hospital says this kind of cold is a real concern. It doesn't take long to see warning signs.

"Shivering is a first sign that things are not doing well. You may feel tingling or numbness to your hands or feet. That's a sign that you may be developing a cold-weather injury to your skin," he says. He adds alcohol will dehydrate you and could make injuries worse. He recommends heading to a warming station as soon as you start to shiver.

"The last thing that you want to do is go warm your hands up, thaw them out so to speak, and then go back out. Because the second injury is worse than the first," he cautions.
