Forsberg made 39 saves in a 2-0 win over the Kraken on Saturday.

It's Forsberg's first win since Oct. 18, evening his record at 3-3-0, and on the season he sports a 3.21 GAA and .860 save percentage.... See More ... See Less

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Expected to start Thursday
Forsberg is set to start at home against Vancouver on Thursday, per Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun.
Forsberg has a 2-2-0 record, 3.42 GAA and .863 save percentage in four contests this season. Those poor numbers are due to his recent struggles -- he's surrendered eight goals on 35 shots (.771 save percentage) over his last two games. Vancouver leads the league with 4.50 goals per game, so Forsberg's task won't get any easier Thursday.... See More ... See Less

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Great saves, but bad luck
Forsberg surrendered five goals on 18 shots before being replaced for the start of the third period in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to Buffalo.
Forsberg made some incredible saves, but he also had some bad luck. The first Buffalo goal came on a two-on-one and the second was a tip-in. The third was a fluky goal that ricocheted off Forsberg's skate and in from behind the net. The Sabres' fourth marker was a tip-in, and the fifth was a redirection. Forsberg delivered some excellent work prior to Tuesday, so let's hope the current alternating start/sit cycle schedule continues for a while.... See More ... See Less

He posted a mark of 2-1-0 with a 1.34 GAA and a .959 save percentage in three outings against the Sabres last campaign.... See More ... See Less
Senators' Anton Forsberg: Picks up second win
Forsberg stopped 23 of 24 shots in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Capitals.

The Senators' defense has been steady in front of him, making his job easier. Forsberg and Joonas Korpisalo have alternated starts so far, and it would be the latter's turn Saturday versus the Red Wings if the early pattern holds.... See More ... See Less

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Nabs win against Philly
Forsberg turned aside 19 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Flyers.
Seeing his first action of the season, Forsberg wasn't tested very often during a game in which the Senators never trailed. The 30-year-old will likely turn things back over to Joonas Korpisalo for Sunday's contest against the Lightning, but if Forsberg can stay healthy in 2023-24, he should see a significant workload as Ottawa's No. 2 netminder....
