Filip Forsberg

Nashville Predators

Filip Forsberg scored his first goal of the playoffs as the Nashville Predators defeated the Dallas Stars by a score of 3-2 Monday night.

Fantasy Impact: The stifling Dallas defense was able to hold Forsberg in check for the first two games of the series before he broke through in Game Three. This just might be the spark Forsberg needs to get going for the Predator's offense. If that is the case, Dallas is going to have their hands full for the remainder of this series.
