With four shots, two hits, and a block over 21:49 of work, Forsberg had quite the night along with his 11th goal of the season. Now with 27 points, it doesn't seem as though he'll top last year's 63 points, but no in Nashville will care to stop him from trying.

Filip Forsberg scored twice, but that was all the Predators could muster in their 3-2 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday night.

Forsberg is one of the few threats within their forward group, and it’s an area the front office needs to address, ASAP. He also had five shots on goal. Forsberg has nine goals and 24 points this season, so it’s been a bit of a disappointment after such a successful rookie campaign. We still like him a lot moving forward. Mike Ribeiro had two assists.

Filip Forsberg scored for the first time since October 15th when he bulged the twine against the Flyers Friday night.

Despite the fact that Forsberg had not been scoring goals, he had been playing well. The whole Predators team was in a terrible offensive funk for much of the month and Forsberg was one of many who were held off the scoresheet. Perhaps this goal will be the beginning of a resurgence for Forsberg.

Filip Forsberg has played very well as of late despite the fact that he still is not racking up the points.

He has scored only two goals this season despite leading the Predators in a number of offensive indicators. According to war-on-ice.com, Forsberg is the Preds' best puck-possession forward in the team's 15 games to date posting an even-strength shot-attempt percentage of over 57. Forsberg also leads the team in scoring chances of the general (44) and high-danger variety (18). We wouldn't worry about Forsberg, as the results are bound to come provided he continues his high level of play.
