Underwood puts off birthday present for Preds' Fisher

BY AP • June 5, 2017

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Mike Fisher's birthday present will have to wait.

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood said she didn't get Fisher - her husband and the Nashville Predators' captain - anything for his 37th birthday on Monday. She's hoping Fisher can celebrate his birthday on another day - with the Stanley Cup if the Predators beat Pittsburgh for the championship.

''I didn't get him anything,'' Underwood said in an interview on NBC with the two teams tied at 1 following the first period. ''I'm terrible.''

Underwood said when she performs, there's no anxiety. When she watches her husband play hockey, she feels much differently.

''I'm way more nervous than I ever would be for myself,'' she said.
