Predators' Filip Forsberg records second natural hat trick in a week
Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg keeps recording hat tricks.
Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg has been on some kind of a roll and continued it on Saturday afternoon when he recorded his second natural hat trick (scoring three consecutive goals in a game without anybody else scoring one between them) in less than a week.
Saturday's effort came just a few days after he scored all three goals for the Predators in a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
On Saturday, he scored three consecutive goals for the Predators in the second period to help them roll to a 5-0 win over the Blues.
Here is a look at his third goal from Saturday.
According to the Predators' TV broadcast, it was the shortest time period between natural hat tricks (only four days) since 1987-88.
Forsberg is now up to 26 goals on the season, matching his total from all of last season in 19 fewer games.
This is all part of a 11-game stretch for Forsberg that has seen him score 12 goals.
The Predators acquired him a trade deadline deal a couple of years ago form the Washington Capitals in one of the few trade deadline prospect deals that actually worked.
