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.

Fans of the Ottawa Senators were happy it was Fisher, the Senators' second-round pick (No. 44) in the 1998 NHL Draft, who scored the winner.
