Forsberg managed a power-play assist in Thursday's Game 7 series loss to the Jets. The Predators suffered a 5-1 loss at Bridgestone Arena, but fans in Nashville should be proud of yet another excellent run by Forsberg and Co. After producing the best points-per-game rate (0.955) of his career during the regular season, Forsberg collected 16 points (seven goals, nine assists) through 13 games in the playoffs, having matched up against the Avalanche and Jets. The winger's fantasy value continues to grow and he's flirting with elite status as we look ahead to the 2018-19 campaign.
Forsberg scored two goals on five shots and had a helper in a 4-0 win over the Jets on Monday. Both of his goals belong on the highlight reel, but that doesn't count for extra for fantasy players. However, what does matter for fantasy is the fact the Swede has 15 points in 12 playoff games. With this series headed to Game 7, he will have at least one more chance to add to that.
Forsberg's primary assist on P.K. Subban's second-period goal held up as the game-winner against the Jets in Game 4 on Thursday. Forsberg led his team with 64 points in the regular season and it's been more of the same throughout the playoffs thus far, as he's collected five goals and seven assists through 10 games. The Swede will carry a three-game point streak into Saturday's Game 5 home contest with the series tied at two games apiece.
Forsberg recorded a goal and an assist -- both on the power play -- to go with nine shots in Tuesday's 7-4 Game 3 loss to Winnipeg. Forsberg was Nashville's best player in this one, as he had more than a third of the team's 26 shots. He was also the only Predator to score after the first period, tying the score at 4-4 at the 7:40 mark of the third. Despite Forsberg's individual brilliance, an offensive onslaught from the home side has the Jets up 2-1 in the series heading into Thursday's Game 4.
Forsberg had three helpers and four shots on net in a 5-4 double-overtime win over the Jets in Sunday's Game 2. Forsberg has been impressive to start the playoffs, as he has nine points in eight games. He's also put a bunch of shot on net, as he has 34 of them thus far. The 23-year-old has been the top forward for the Predators for four seasons, so if Nashville does well, he'll likely be a big part of it.
