Forsberg scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes. Forsberg beat James Reiner clean on a breakaway late in the second period to tie the game 1-1. The 26-year-old has found the net in each of the first three games of the season despite totalling just seven shots on goal. Forsberg appears to be headed for a seventh straight 20-goal season.
Forsberg scored a goal on two shots and had a pair of hits in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Blue Jackets. Forsberg created a defensive-zone turnover early in the third period, led a rush up ice, and snapped one from the left circle to give the Predators a 2-1 lead. It was the second goal in as many games for Forsberg, a six-time 20-goal man. He'll look to stay hot with a pair of home games early next week against Carolina.
Forsberg scored a goal on two shots and had two PIM in Thursday's 3-1 victory over the Blue Jackets. Forsberg gained possession off of a defensive zone faceoff, powered his way up the left wing boards to create a 2-on-1, and beat Joonas Korpisalo with a snap shot from the left faceoff dot. The goal, which came at the 5:48 mark of the third period, stood as the game-winner. Forsberg is as consistent as they come among NHL forwards, having eclipsed the 20-goal plateau in each of his first six full seasons. He collected 48 points in 63 games in 2019-20.
Forsberg scored a goal and an assist during Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Coyotes in Game 4 of their Stanley Cup Qualifier. With Nashville down 2-1 in the second period and facing elimination, Forsberg helped set up Viktor Arvidsson for the tying goal, then took matters into his own hands in the final minute of the third, wiring a one-timer past Darcy Kuemper with 32 seconds left on the clock to send the game to OT. Unfortunately for the Preds, their luck ran out in the extra period. Forsberg scored at least 20 goals for the sixth straight campaign in 2019-20, and the 25-year-old should remain a key part of the team's offense next season.
Forsberg scored a pair of power-play goals and led all players with seven shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Arizona in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Qualifiers. Forsberg nearly single-handedly brought Nashville back from 3-0 and 4-1 deficits, getting the Predators on the board with three seconds left in the first period and adding his second goal midway through the final frame. Forsberg had three points in his last regular-season outing -- and collected points in three of his final four -- and wasted no time picking up where he left off.
