Mike Fisher missed a week of action last month with what his wife Carrie Underwood termed a "foot fracture thing", and hopefully he didn't re-aggravate it tonight against the Los Angeles Kings. While coming back into the Nashville zone early in the second period his skates collided with Kings captain Dustin Brown, sending Fisher to the ice awkwardly.
