Forsberg scored a goal on three shots and added two PIM in Monday's 3-2 win over the Stars in Game 3. He was held off the scoresheet in the first two games in Nashville, but found his scoring touch in Dallas. Forsberg's had nine shots and five hits in three games. He's coming off of a 50-point season, his fifth consecutive year of hitting that mark. If he can produce like a first-line winger going forward, the Predators could make a deep run.
Forsberg generated a goal and an assist in Saturday's win over the Blackhawks. The Predators had a two-goal deficit heading into the second period. Forsberg took over and dished out an assist to Dante Fabbro and scored a goal of his own to tie the game heading into the third frame. This gave Forsberg 50 points through 64 games, marking the fifth straight season he hit the 50-point mark. Forsberg and the Predators will face off against the Stars in the first round of playoffs.
Forsberg lit the lamp in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jackets. Forsberg scooped up the rebound of P.K. Subban's shot and sent it home to cut the Blue Jackets' lead to one. This was good for Forsberg's 27th goal of the season, topping last campaign's total. Although he's improved in scoring, his helping hand has heavily regressed to just 20 assists after registering 38 apples last campaign.
Forsberg scored his 25th goal of the season and added a helper in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Sharks. Forsberg is up to 45 points in 55 games, in a season that's seen him deal with a couple of injuries. The left wing added three shots and three blocked shots in the contest. Forsberg's season numbers aren't near the 60 points we've come to expect from him, but with 0.82 points per game, he's been productive when healthy.
Forsberg (upper body) scored twice on the power play in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Ducks. With his team down three goals but up two men, Forsberg tallied, and then ended the one-man advantage a minute later with his second marker of the night, but he couldn't draw the Predators even from there. Forsberg's up to 24 goals and 43 points in 53 games this season, having lost 18 games to injuries. It's unlikely the winger reaches the 60-point threshold by season's end, but 50 to 55 points is a reasonable expectation.
