Fisher came back to Preds to chase Cup

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Losing the Stanley Cup last June wasn't what hurt Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg the most. Seeing how painful the loss was for veteran center Mike Fisher proved even more agonizing.

Martin Jones has been just that kind of goalie since coming to San Jose three years ago.
