The Nashville Predators have activated C Mike Fisher for tonight’s game against San Jose. (The Preds also activated D Francis Bouillon, who is not married to anyone famous.)

Fisher returns to the lineup after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery that cost him all of the preseason and Nashville’s first seven regular season games. Getting him back is big for the Preds — Fisher had 19 points in 39 games after coming over from Ottawa last season and helped lead the team to the first playoff series win in franchise history.

The trade also put him and wife Carrie Underwood in the same city, making them Tennessee’s hottest power couple since…Vince Gill and Amy Grant? Jeff Fisher and Jeff Fisher’s wife? That’s all I got.

As for what to expect this evening, Dirk Hoag at On The Forecheck suggests there could be a rust factor as Fisher hasn’t been practicing with the team. Whereas Bouillion traveled with the Predators on their recent Western Canada road swing, Fisher stayed behind in Nashville to work out and strengthen his shoulder.

“I’ve been skating since August and have been shooting,” Fisher told the Preds website. “Conditioning-wise, I feel ready and strong. I should be good to go … I just have to build confidence in it. I’ve been trying to do that in practice but it’s different than in a game. It will be good to get in there and see how it feels.”

      Not even close, Elisha Cuthbert by a long shot. And plus, have you ever heard Carrie Underwood sing? Dear God is she awful. I just heard that song she did with Brad Paisley and everytime she sings I have to hold myself back from wanting to rip my ears off the sides of my head. Ear piercingly bad. Elisha for sure.

      I’d go Carrie as well but lets be honest you end up with either one and your not losing at all.

    Nashville power couples? How ’bout Keith Urban and his better half. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. (Girls, don’t ever touch his crotch if you want to keep that hand.) Miranda and that hillbilly bonehead she married. Kenny Chesney and … oops, never mind that one. (I believe you Kenny, really I do.)
