Predators' Mike Fisher Signs Two-Year Extension

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) -- Predators veteran forward Mike Fisher will be staying in Nashville for two more years.  Fisher who was scheduled to become a restricted free agent after next season signed a two-year extension worth $8.4 million on Monday.

Fisher has been with Nashville since February 2011 after coming over in a trade from the Senators. He's happy to be staying in the "Music City".

"Obviously I love being here," said the 32-year-old on Monday. "It has been a great year and a half for me. I love everything about the city. It is just a perfect situation."

There were questions on whether or not Predators general manager David Poile would be able to spend any more money this offseason after matching the Flyers 14-year, $110 million offer sheet for defenseman Shea Weber last month, but Fisher was someone important to the franchise.

"He's a great veteran player and now an assistant captain," said Predators general manager David Poile.  "He won the NHL Foundation award for community service and I think that speaks well of Mike not only as a hockey player but more importantly as a human being."

Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Detroit might be hockey town USA, but on Sunday, the day belonged to the Nashville Predators as they defeated the Red Wings 3-2 to take a 2-1 series lead in their opening round playoff matchup.

In the second period, the Predators took a 2-0 lead when Kevin Klein scored off an assist from Martin Erat. Sergei Kostitsyn scored early in the third period to take a 3-1 lead and there was no looking back.
