No matter how you look at it, Mike Fisher and the Nashville Predators made history this year. Never before in franchise history had the Predators made it to the Stanley Cup Finals, and they were 2 games away from winning the whole thing.
Unfortunately, their Finals run ended on Sunday (June 11) with a loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, who became back-to-back Stanley Cup Champions, something that hasn't been done since 1998.
When the Predators made the playoffs, their celebrity fans became extremely vocal on social media, none more so than Fisher's wife, Carrie Underwood. After every win it seemed, she shared a video of her and her friends dancing to DJ Khaled's song "All I Do Is Win", which is the song Bridgestone Arena plays after every time the Preds win at home.
In playoff games where the Predators did not do so well, she was extremely vocal on Twitter, expressing her frustration with the refereeing. After the Penguins clinched the Cup, she has stayed suspiciously quiet, and so has her husband.
Fisher finally broke his silence on Wednesday (June 14) on Instagram, prompting thousands of likes within minutes.
"Thank you Preds fans for an unforgettable year! You brought passion like the NHL has never seen before and made me so proud to wear the jersey! You guys made this experience the best year of my career and can't thank you enough for the support and for the memories that I'll never forget," he wrote accompanying a photo of a sold-out Bridgestone Arena.
Fans loved his post and many commented, thanking him for a being a great team leader and an even better man off the ice. Watch Underwood perform the National Anthem before one of the Stanley Cup Playoff games below.
