Devoted hockey fans may notice that one superstar country singer is especially fired up during this year’s Stanley Cup finals.

Grammy winner Carrie Underwood—one of the most outspoken voices to take to social media during the 2017 NHL Playoffs—has been anything but low-key as husband, Nashville Predators captain Mike Fisher, steers the team through its first-ever appearance at the Stanley Cup finals. Here are 10 ways Underwood has expressed her unwavering love and support for Fisher and his teammates during this year’s playoffs.

1. She Says ‘Sure’ to a ‘Predicure’

The paws of a Predator. The singer has even made sure her manicure and pedicure match the team’s blue and gold colors. “Got that #PredsPride baby, from my fingers to my toes!” Before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the singer showed off . “Got my PREDicure for the game tonight!” she expressed as she tagged Nashville-based nail artist Jennifer Tsourvakas in another post.


2. She’s Ready to Capture Sweet Family Moments

Underwood was camera-ready when Fisher handed a puck to their adorable son, Isaiah, during a playoff game in April. “These are the moments…” she wrote. “@mfisher1212 giving a puck to the little man while Papa holds on tight. #blessed.” In early May, the songstress snapped another photo of her husband greeting their little one in the locker room after a game. “This pic…” she wrote.

These are the moments… @mfisher1212 giving a puck to the little man while Papa holds on tight. #blessed

3. She’s Dressed for the Occasion

Underwood, the designer behind her own fitness line called Calia by Carrie, has repeatedly traded in the cute printed running pants for Predators-approved apparel including this particular “Smash” hat and her husband’s jersey.

4. She’s Loud… and Proud

The “Before He Cheats” singer has acknowledged on numerous occasions that celebrations aren’t exactly pitch perfect. “Awesome win tonight in #Smashville !!! The Preds are on 🔥! Please pardon our bad celebration singing/dancing!” Underwood captioned one video, while adding in another: “Yes!!! Pardon our craziness but we just won, won, won!!! @predsnhl.”

#Smashville has completely gone crazy!!!! 3-0 baby!!! One more! @predsnhl

6. She Takes to the Ice Personally

In April, Underwood surprised Nashville fans when she took to the ice to sing the National Anthem during a game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

7. She Keeps Up With the Team and Local Media

8. She’ll Occasionally Live Tweet Commentary

Nothing fishy here! After a fan tossed a catfish on the ice—how it got into the arena is another question—Underwood made her sentiments known about the gesture.

9. She’ll Dance Anxiously on Behalf of Her Husband

10. She’ll Still Remain Optimistic Despite a Loss

Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals airs on May 31 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
