Carrie Underwood Celebrates Nashville’s Stanley Cup Run in Style [PICTURES]
When you're a NHL team captain's wife, your dedication to the team stretches beyond that of most other fans -- just ask Carrie Underwood. The country superstar, who is married to Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher, celebrated the Preds Western Conference Final win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night (May 22), and she was sure to let her social media followers know all about it.
Underwood attended the big game with a group of girlfriends, decked out in a gold "NASHVILLE" jacket and a "CATCHIN' DUCKS" hat. Even Underwood's manicure matched Nashville's team colors: An Instagram photo (hashtagged, aptly, with "#SpiritFingers") shows her blue-and-gold-painted nails.
Following the Predators 6-3 victory over the Ducks, Underwood shared video of the Bridgestone Arena crowd cheering loudly as the team was presented with the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl in recognition of their status as NHL Western Conference Champions.
Fisher, whom Underwood married in 2010, has been with the Nashville Predators since 2011, when he was traded from the Ottawa Senators. He was named Predators team captain at the beginning of the 2016-2017 NHL hockey season.
The Preds won their Western Conference Final sears vs. the Ducks four games to two and will now compete for the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history. Nashville defeated the Chicago Blackhawks four games to none during their first Stanley Cup Playoffs series to advance to Round 2; they then defeated the St. Louis Blues four games to two in that series to advance to Round 3.
The Predators' Stanley Cup Final opponent has yet to be determined; in the Eastern Conference Final series, the Pittsburgh Penguins are leading the Ottawa Senators three games to two, with Game 6 scheduled for Tuesday night (May 23). The Stanley Cup Final series is scheduled to begin on Monday (May 29), with Nashville’s first home game scheduled for June 3. The team will also host a game on June 5, and could be hosting a game on June 11, should the series go that long.
