Carrie Underwood was instrumental in getting her husband, Mike Fisher, to rejoin the Nashville Predators hockey team.
Last year, the team made it to the Stanley Cup finals, but lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Soon after, Mike announced his retirement.
But this year, the team is once again in the playoffs and has a good shot of making it to the finals again.
"What's the worst that can happen, barring an injury? Let's take that off the table.You make a run for it and it's a repeat of last year. Hopefully not. What's the best thing that could happen? To see somebody who has worked so hard for so long at something he loves. You, know, I want to see him win."
The Preds took round one of the playoffs against the Colorado Avalanche. Now on to round two with the Winnipeg Jets this week.
I guess the smile says it all. As I was driving to the rink yesterday I couldn’t help but laugh and smile. It felt like driving home to be honest! Sometimes God has surprises or blessings we don’t see coming and for this I’m grateful! I’m so blessed to have to the opportunity to join a great group of men and play for a team and city I love! Thanks to my wife and family for supporting me all the way! Now it’s time to WIN!! #preds #smashville
