Senators' Anton Forsberg: Making back-to-back starts
Forsberg will guard the road goal against the Maple Leafs on Friday before defending the home goal against Montreal on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of The Ottawa Sun reports.
With Cam Talbot sidelined with a lower-body injury, the Senators will ride Forsberg heading into the All-Star break. The 30-year-old Forsberg will first try to pick up a road win in a tough matchup with a Toronto team that's 19-3-4 at home this year. The Maple Leafs will, however, be without leading goal scorer Auston Matthews, who is set to miss a minimum of three weeks with a sprained knee.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Makes 31 saves to top Leafs
Forsberg stopped 31 of 33 shots in a 6-2 victory over Toronto on Friday.
One of the two goals Forsberg surrendered was scored during a Maple Leafs power play. He improved to 9-10-2 with a 3.24 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 25 contests this season. Forsberg had a 0-2-0 record, 5.14 GAA and .847 save percentage over his previous three games.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Holds lead in relief
Forsberg stopped 21 of 22 shots after replacing Cam Talbot (lower body) in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
Talbot exited just before the game's halfway point, leaving Forsberg to play the final 31:55 even though Talbot was credited with the win. With Talbot expected to be sidelined through at least the All-Star break, Forsberg will likely get most or all of the starts through early February. Forsberg came in with a 2-0 lead and limited the struggling Islanders offense to a single goal, but he had struggled mightily against far tougher competition before this game, allowing a combined 12 goals to the Avalanche and Jets over his previous two outings....

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Buried by Avs
Forsberg made 26 saves in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Avalanche.
Colorado scored multiple goals in every period and simply dominated the visitors, and the ugly final result was far more on the Ottawa defense than it was on Forsberg. The veteran netminder had given up only seven goals total in his prior four starts and hadn't allowed more than three since Dec. 8, but on the season he still carries a shaky 3.25 GAA and .902 save percentage....

Minnesota's final goal was scored into an empty net. Forsberg didn't play poorly, but the Ottawa offense didn't get on the board until the third period. Cam Talbot has won four straight starts with a 1.76 GAA, so Forsberg and his 3.23 GAA and .906 save percentage on the season will remain stuck in the backup role for now.... See More ... See Less

Forsberg allowed four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Stars.
Forsberg didn't allow a goal in a relief outing versus the Kings on Tuesday, but he couldn't carry his fortunes over into his second start in three games.
