  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Downs Devils in shootout

    Forsberg stopped 22 of 24 shots in Monday's 3-2 shootout win over the Devils.

    Forsberg allowed goals to Damon Severson and Nathan Bastian in regulation, but he also made two of three saves in the shootout to earn the win. The 29-year-old goalie is building some momentum with three straight victories. He's now 4-4-0 with a 3.79 GAA and an .895 save percentage. The Senators finished a back-to-back set Tuesday versus the struggling Islanders, although it's more likely Filip Gustavsson gets that start.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Monday

    Forsberg will get the starting nod for Monday's game in New Jersey.

    Forsberg has won each of his last two starts while allowing a combined seven goals on 80 shots. Still, the 29-year-old owns a brutal 4.13 GAA and .893 save percentage through eight appearances this season. Forsberg has actually been better on the road this season with a .919 save percentage in three games away from home.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets second straight win

    Forsberg made 26 saves in a 6-5 shootout win over the Avs on Saturday.

    The first period was even, but his mates gave him a 5-3 lead heading into the third. Forsberg bent, but didn't break, and got his team to the extra frame. He now has two straight wins and they've been against the Canes and Avs, two formidable teams. It won't last forever, but right now, Forsberg is dialled in.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Saturday

    Forsberg will protect the home goal versus the Avalanche on Saturday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

    Forsberg has gone 2-4-0 with a 3.97 GAA and a .900 save percentage in his seven games this season. Even with Nazem Kadri (undisclosed) out, the Avalanche will post a huge challenge, making Forsberg an unfavorable option in fantasy.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Busy in road win

    Forsberg made 47 saves in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    It was the Forsberg and Alex Formenton show for the Senators, as the former made save after save and the latter gave Ottawa a 2-0 lead. Formenton's second goal 9:05 into the third period seemed destined to secure the win, but the Hurricanes managed to tie it less than five minutes later with two goals in a span of 1:45. Just 19 seconds after the game-tying goal, Josh Norris restored Ottawa's lead for good, and Forsberg shut the door from there to end the Senators' losing streak at six games. The Swede has made at least 46 saves in both of his wins this season, but his 2-4-0 record and 3.98 GAA suggests the occasional brilliant performance is overshadowed by his usual clunkers behind Ottawa's porous defense.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: In goal Thursday

    Forsberg will get the starting nod versus the Hurricanes on the road Thursday, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Forsberg is winless in his last five appearances, as he is sporting a 0-4-0 record and disastrous 5.18 GAA. With a back-to-back on the schedule, the club has little choice but to roll with Forsberg versus a Canes squad that is scoring 3.19 goals per game, unless the Senators want to bring back Matt Murray from the minors.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gives up four in road loss

    Forsberg allowed four goals on 33 shots in a 4-0 loss to the Ducks on Friday.

    It was the second consecutive 4-0 loss for Forsberg, whose last -- and only -- victory this season came back on Opening Night. He's now 1-4-0 through six appearances (five starts), posting a grisly 4.56 GAA and .883 save percentage.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Squaring off against Ducks

    Forsberg will start Friday in Anaheim, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    With just one win and terrible ratios (4.57 GAA, .884 save percentage) through five appearances this year, Forsberg makes for a shaky fantasy play, at best. The Ducks are 7-3-0 in the month of November but have lost three games in a row.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets no help in loss

    Forsberg made 29 saves in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Flames.

    With the Senators missing so many players due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the locker room, Forsberg had no margin for error, but he also didn't deliver a performance worthy of a better result. The 28-year-old has a 4.56 GAA and .884 save percentage through five appearances this season, and Filip Gustavsson should remain the team's No. 1 netminder until Matt Murray clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Starting Sunday

    Forsberg will start Sunday's game against visiting Calgary.

    Forsberg has been pretty bad in four appearances this season, posting a 4.82 GAA and .885 save percentage. He most recently allowed four goals on 16 shots to the Capitals on Oct. 25. The Flames have mustered just four goals over a three-game losing streak, though, so this could make for an interesting contest.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Set for backup duties

    Forsberg (illness) will back up Filip Gustavsson in Thursday's game versus the Kings, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Forsberg did not dress for Tuesday's game versus the Bruins, but it appears he's over his illness. He should be in the mix to start over the weekend with the Senators facing the Penguins on Saturday and the Flames on Sunday.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Unavailable Tuesday

    Forsberg is dealing with a non-COVID-19 illness and will not suit up Tuesday in Boston.

    In a corresponding move, the team has recalled Filip Gustavsson from AHL Belleville. It's unclear if Matt Murray or Gustavsson will start against the Bruins on Tuesday.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets starting nod against Caps

    Forsberg will be between the pipes for Monday's home clash with Washington, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Forsberg should get the nod for at least the club's next two contests while starter Matt Murray (head/neck)n is on injured reserve, though the club has yet to provide a clear timeline for when its No. 1 is expected back. In the meantime, Forsberg should continue to see the bulk of the starts with Filip Gustavsson potentially playing one leg of an upcoming back-to-back Monday (Chicago) and Tuesday (Minnesota).

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Gets quick hook Monday

    Forsberg stopped 12 of 16 shots before being replaced by Filip Gustavsson late in the first period of Monday's 7-5 loss to the Capitals.

    Somewhat miraculously, Forsberg didn't wind up with the loss despite leaving the game with the Senators down 4-1, as Ottawa tied the game up in the second period before eventually faltering. The 28-year-old is off to a rough start to the season with a 4.80 GAA and ,885 save percentage through four appearances, but Forsberg still figures to remain the No. 2 netminder ahead of Gustavsson once Matt Murray (head) is back in action.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tough loss in emergency action

    Forsberg replaced Matt Murray (head) late in the third period Saturday, stopping one of three shots to take the loss as the Senators fell 3-2 to the Rangers.

    Murray was injured due to some accidental contact with Chris Kreider right after Kreider scored the Rangers' first goal of the game, and a cold Forsberg gave up two more tallies in the next two minutes and 20 seconds to get stuck with the loss. If Murray's injury proves to be serious, Forsberg would likely take over as Ottawa's No. 1 netminder despite his 3.45 GAA to begin the season.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Flashes leather but takes loss

    Forsberg made 26 saves in a 3-1 loss to Toronto on Saturday.

    He played well again -- he made a brilliant glove save late in the second on a point blank backhander from John Tavares that was Sportscenter worthy. Forsberg doesn't have a history of success, but he's looked good this season. He's a matchups play if he keeps this up.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Starting in Toronto

    Forsberg will guard the road cage during Saturday's matchup with the Maple Leafs, TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    Forsberg was fantastic in Ottawa's season opener versus Toronto on Thursday, stopping 46 of 48 shots en route to an impressive 3-2 victory. The 28-year-old netminder will attempt to secure a second straight win over the same Maple Leafs squad on the road Saturday.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Comes up big against Leafs

    Forsberg made 46 saves on 48 shots Thursday, helping his team to a 3-2 win over Toronto.

    This was an impressive showing from the veteran, as Forsberg was pressed into action with Matt Murray (illness) unavailable. However, the fact that he faced 48 shots underscores the danger of trusting Ottawa netminders in fantasy, as the Senators are going to give up a lot of shots on a regular basis. The Senators face the Leafs again Saturday as the first of a back-to-back, so they might opt to give Toronto a new look and bring Forsberg back against Dallas on Sunday.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: In goal Thursday

    Forsberg will get the starting nod at home against the Maple Leafs on Thursday, Steve Lloyd of TSN 1200 Ottawa reports.

    With Matt Murray dealing with an illness, Forsberg will take the Senators' first game of the season. The 28-year-old Forsberg saw action in just eight games for Ottawa last year, in which he posted a 3-4-1 record, but he will likely already have made two starts in the first three games thanks to the team's upcoming back-to-back versus Toronto and Dallas on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

  • Senators' Anton Forsberg: Tending twine Thursday

    Forsberg will protect the road goal Thursday versus the Canadiens.

    Forsberg is expected to play the full contest Thursday. The 28-year-old remains in competition with Filip Gustavsson for the backup job behind Matt Murray heading into the 2021-22 season. Forsberg should be favored for that job due to experience, but he's not likely to be much of a factor in fantasy.
