Of Course He Did
Yep, of course the famously streaky Mike Fisher would have to go out and drop 2 goals and an assist in his first ever playoff game for Nashville. He was the 1st overall star in last night's action according to the Puck Daddy blog and with good reason. Fisher's strong play helped them to a 1-0 series lead in Anaheim against the Ducks. Don't get too excited, we all know he's likely not to score the rest of the playoffs and go on a patented cold streak for 15 games. Still frustrating to see. He had 29 career playoff points for the Sens in 75 games before this.
Alexei Kovalev wasn't to be outdone either, scoring a goal in the Penguins shutout win at home over high flying Tampa Bay. Chris Campoli wasn't so lucky, he was on the losing end of a goose egg, being shutout by Vancouver.
Thoughts on Fisher's hot start?
