Nashville’s Mike Fisher has been on a tear of late.

In his past two games, Fisher has six points with three goals in helping the Predators beat the Kings and Red Wings. As Mike Organ of The Tennessean shares, he gives credit to the Christmas break for his recent resurgence.

“The three days off and mom’s cooking at home didn’t hurt either,” Fisher said. “I definitely play better when I’m rested. I’ve been playing some nights a lot of minutes, so I’ve got to be smart and take the rest when I can.”

Three days off for Christmas did Fisher and the Predators a world of good. Getting back-to-back wins against a pair of contending teams to help break a five-game losing skid will make anyone feel good.

As it is, offense has been an issue for Nashville. Fisher’s 10 goals puts him second on the team behind Craig Smith in that category. His 19 points has him only six back of team leader David Legwand. If he can stay hot, perhaps the Preds can get back in the playoff picture out West.

    If had 3 days with Carrie Underwood I’d be feeling pretty good too.

      Funny how we assume that the best looking people will be the best bed partners.

    That’s a gooooood looking woman he’s got. IMO he one upped Tom Brady. But that’s just me.

      I have no respect for Tom Brady in that regard – leaving his 1st wife and kids following a modeling gig where he had an affair with a super model.

    You’d think the opposite would be true, how can you have any energy left after getting to sleep in the same bed as Carrie Underwood? With a woman who’s that gorgeous there should be very little sleeping going on.
