Alert, Preds fans! It is official; BOTH Francis Bouillon and Mike Fisher are ready to play TONIGHT! How awesome is that? Both Bouillon and Fisher will be a much needed veteran influence and force for the youngest roster in the NHL.
As you recall, Fisher has missed the first seven games due to undergoing shoulder surgery during the summer and Bouillon has been recovering from a concussion he suffered in January against the Chicago Blackhawks.
How will Fisher and Bouillon’s return effect the team? Hopefully, for our sake, on a positive note, but we are a little nervous for Bouillon. It has taken him a while (six months) to recuperate from his injury, and for some reason, we just can’t shake the whole Matthew Lombardi situation from our recent memory. Of course, Bouillon has been working hard to recover, much more than could be said for Lombardi (let’s not discuss his trade to the Maple Leafs and how well he’s done). Mike Fisher, on the other hand, we aren’t too worried about. He, like Francis, has been practicing and focusing on recovering to return.
Don’t forget, the puck drops at 7PM tonight against the San Jose Sharks! Do you think they’re ready for The Cube and Mr. Carrie Underwood (sorry, Mike!)?
