Just to highlight how little playoff history the Nashville Predators have, 22-year-old Filip Forsberg is close to becoming the franchise leader in postseason points.

Forsberg has 14 goals and 25 points in 36 career playoff games. The Predators' all-time leaders are David Legwand and Shea Weber, who are tied with 28 points. This is the 10th time that the Predators have made it to the playoffs, but before this year they had never advanced to the Western Conference Final, let alone the Stanley Cup Final. Obviously their adversary, Pittsburgh, has a longer playoff history, with Mario Lemieux being the all-time leader for the Penguins with 172 playoff points. That said, Sidney Crosby is closing in on him with 157 points.

Filip Forsberg has gotten the nickname "Mr. Clutch" among the Predators players.

Forsberg has certainly come through for Nashville so far in the playoffs with six goals and 11 points in 13 contests. That's a big change from the 2016 postseason when he was limited to two goals and four points in 14 contests. "It just seemed to be overwhelming to him as a young player, which happens," Predators GM David Poile said. "I think this year, what we’ve seen in the playoffs, he has so much more confidence and swagger to his game." There are a lot of reasons why the Predators have gotten to the Western Conference Final, but the offense Forsberg has provided is certainly high up on that list.
