Country star Carrie Underwood is furious that the National Hockey League appeared to screw up an easy call, robbing her husband and the Nashville Predators.
Most of the time, we see Carrie Underwood smiling, singing, and having a damn good time. That was not the case on Tuesday night, as Underwood was watching husband Mike Fisher and his Nashville Predators taking on the Florida Panthers.
Trailing 2-1 with under a second remaining in the third period, it appeared Nashville had miraculously tied the game on a goalmouth scramble in front of Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo. However, the officials turned to replay and the powers that be in the Toronto league office shockingly reversed the goal, citing goaltender interference. You watch the play for yourself and explain to any of us how that’s the correct call…
Underwood tweeted her outrage from her account, and who can blame her?
Ultimately, the regulation loss left the Predators with work to o over their final pair of regular-season games. Nashville still controls its own destiny in the Central Division, needing one more win (or a loss by the Winnipeg Jets) to clinch both the division and home-ice advantage throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs. Of course, Nashville might have been able to do that on Tuesday, if not for a dubious call.
Nashville’s remaining games are both quite difficult. The Predators stay on the road for a date with the Washington Capitals on Thursday evening, before returning home to end the 82-game slate with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Capitals are locked into their playoff positioning as the Metro Division champs, but the Blue Jackets are still fighting for their lives in the postseason race.
