While the Nashville Predators were celebrating, and hopefully getting some sleep, after their 4-3 triple-overtime defeat of the San Jose Sharks in Game 4 of the Western Conference Second Round, social media was ablaze Friday morning about Mike Fisher's winning goal in the longest game of the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The game started at 8:10 p.m. CT on Thursday and ended at 1:03 a.m. CT on Friday.

The best-of-7 series is tied 2-2. Game 5 will be at SAP Center on Saturday (10 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

Fisher's wife, country singer Carrie Underwood, took time to react from her "The Storyteller" tour stop in Wisconsin.
