Forsberg scored both the game-tying goal (4-4) and the go-ahead marker (5-4), but it wasn't enough to propel his team to victory. Forsberg has 19 goals and 39 points in 59 games this season.

Filip Forsberg scored his 12th goal in a 4-3 win over Calgary on Thursday.

The goal was his third in four games as he looks to be heating up. Forsberg has 28 points in 45 games but his fantasy owners will expect more in the second half of the season. He had 64 points in 82 games last season.

Filip Forsberg, Mike Fisher, and Ryan Ellis each made four shots on goal Tuesday night, but none of them found the back of the net as the Predators lost 1-0 to the Canucks.

The three shooters accounted for 40 percent of the total shots on goal, but Ryan Miller was perfect in the net. Forsberg had the greatest opportunity with just over 19 minute of ice time. He has scored in his last two efforts although it took five shots against the Avalanche Saturday night to sink one goal.
Jan 18 - 1:05 AM

Filip Forsberg scored his 10th goal of the season during Saturday's 3-2 win over the Avalanche.

Through 42 games this season the talented youngster now has just 26 points, well off the 60+-point pace he set for himself the last two season. He has points in consecutive games now though, so maybe this is the start of something big.

Filip Forsberg kept his hot streak going Thursday night with another goal.

Jan 6 - 10:14 AM

Filip Forsberg scored a goal and an assist in Nashville's 4-0 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Forsberg's goal gave the Predators a 2-0 lead in the second period before he set up Colin Wilson's marker in the final frame. The Preds forward got off to a rough start this season, but he's turned it on of late. Forsberg's scored five goals in his last six games and he's amassed six points during that span. The 22-year-old is up to eight goals and 15 assists in 36 games this season.
