It was a hard loss that was felt by most of Nashville and Predators fans that live elsewhere across the country, but the agony of a Stanley Cup defeat was most felt by those players who left it all on the ice, not just in June’s Game 6, but through the whole season.
Gradually, we began to hear from players on the NHL Nashville Predators team, thanking the fans for their support and sharing their pride in their teammates. But it wasn’t until a handful of days after the final game, that the team’s captain shared his thoughts.
Mike Fisher posted a beautiful photo of the team’s home, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, on his Instagram page and wrote a poignant message thanking the fans for an “unforgettable year.” He also said, “You brought passion like the NHL has never seen before and made me so proud to wear the jersey. You guy made this experience the best year of my career and I can’t thank you enough for the support and for the memories that I’ll never forget.”
