How would Finn Hudson look in a grizzly beard? Because it’s Stanley Cup playoff season in the National Hockey League, the time when superstitious players refuse to shave as long as their team’s alive, and Glee’s Cory Monteith is a passionate Vancouver Canucks fan. His team advanced to the second round on Tuesday night with a thrilling 2-1 overtime victory in a Game 7 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Wearing a green Canucks t-shirt, the Canadian native stopped by NHL.com to relive his team’s glorious cliffhanger, which he witnessed on TV in a midtown New York pub. “I literally stood up … and started screaming,” crowed Monteith. “And everybody was like, ‘What is this guy doing?’”
Vancouver and Monteith might have their hands full now, though. Not only do the Canucks face the Nashville Predators in a best-of-seven series beginning tonight, but Monteith’s fandom – and singing talents – is about to be crushed by one Carrie Underwood. The singing sensation is married to Predators forward Mike Fisher.
Will these two high-profile fans be willing to put their voices where… their mouths are? Loser has to sing the other’s national anthem in the playoffs’ next round? Who’s game for a little wager?
