Silver Nuggets: Mike Fisher tribute edition

Mike Fisher scores in overtime in Game 6 of the 2004 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals to send it to game 7 in Toronto. We all know what happened there, but what a moment that was for Mike. We'll miss you!

As everyone knows, Mike Fisher was traded to the Nashville Predators for a first round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft as well as a conditional pick in the 2012 NHL Draft. That picture is my favourite moment of Mike Fisher and what a goal it was. It was great to be in Toronto the next day, regardless of what happened in Game 7. As the Senators played in Nashville this season, next season the Predators will visit Ottawa and I am sure Mike will get a great reaction.

Here is a special Mike Fisher edition of Silver Nuggets.
