Filip Forsberg dropped his broken stick and raced to the bench for another just as the puck slid around the boards near his skates. He grabbed a new stick from the Predators‘ equipment manager Cheap Josh Allen Jersey , fought off Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot and kept the puck onside.
Then he skated toward Connor Hellebuyck, holding off Chiarot as he scored, then slid into the net .
The man also known as Scoresberg or Filthy Fil then helped send the Western Conference semifinal back to Nashville for a deciding Game 7 with another highlight-reel worthy goal. Viktor Arvidsson found Forsberg and the Swede slipped the puck through his legs, a movement that prompted Hellebuyck to slide away from the post to cover the empty net to his left.
Forsberg immediately flipped the puck through the sliver of an opening, causing a GIF-frenzy on social media.
With the postseason that Forsberg is having, Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne can’t settle on the best goal he’s seen from his teammate.
”I feel like these two series that already at least three or four really unbelievable goals, and it’s hard to pick,” Rinne said. ”I’m just a fan when I watch him play.”
Forsberg led the Predators with 64 points helping Nashville win the franchise’s first Presidents’ Trophy during the regular season. He now is the franchise’s all-time leading scorer in the playoffs with 15 points this postseason, bringing Nashville back for Game 7 on Thursday night against Winnipeg as the Predators seek a second straight berth in the West final. The winner of this series will host the Vegas Golden Knights for the first two games.
With Pittsburgh and Boston eliminated, Forsberg now is tied with Washington’s Alex Ovechkin for the most points scored this postseason with 15, and the Predators forward has a plus-4 rating that is a point ahead of Ovechkin with both having played 12 games each.
Forsberg looks just comfortable passing the puck through his own legs as those of a defenseman he’s undressing on his way to another goal or even just juggling the puck with his stick to give teammates time to get back onside. The 23-year-old forward from Ostervala Authentic Hayden Hurst Jersey , Sweden, said his stick skills are the result of lots of hard work.
”Natural is definitely not the word for it, but it just takes a lot of practice, takes a lot of you doing,” Forsberg said. ”Just try to maybe do it in practice and stuff like that and once in a while you get time and space for it in a game, you try to pull it off.”
Some scorers tap into their natural talent, blessed with quick hands and eyes along with soft hands. Others spend hours and hours developing muscle memory. Forsberg counts himself among those who made themselves into scorers. He started as a young child using a shooting ramp his father built for Forsberg and his brother and lots of road hockey.
”I think that’s where it all started,” Forsberg said.
His skills grew as he led his junior team with 40 points in 2010-11 and helped Sweden win silver at the 2011 World Under-18 Championship. Forsberg was captain when Sweden won both the World Under-18 and World Junior championships in 2012.
The Washington Capitals made Forsberg their first-round pick at No. 11 overall in 2012. He never played a game for the Capitals before being traded April 3, 2013, to Nashville in exchange for Martin Erat and Martin Latta.
The Predators wasted no time getting Forsberg on the ice, playing him five games that same season. Forsberg spent only 13 games with Nashville in 2013-14 Cheap Customized Houston Texans Jerseys , and he has been a fixture in the lineup since 2014-15. They signed him to a six-year, $36 million contract in June 2016.
Center Nick Bonino won two Stanley Cups with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in Pittsburgh, and he’s gotten to watch Forsberg up close this season after signing as a free agent.
”He’s very skilled,” Bonino said. ”He’s one of the most skilled sticks I’ve ever seen. Practice is fun with him. Games are fun with him.”
Forward Colton Sissons sees Forsberg as having a gift that helps him see how best to move the puck instantly to execute in high-pressure moments. Sissons also is pretty sure of what might happen if he tried to mimic some of Forsberg’s scoring moves.
”I might break my ankle or something bad might happen,” Sissons said. ”I’d probably just jam it in the near post, but I’ll leave the through the legs stuff to Fil and some of those guys.”
The 2018 NFL season is less than two months away from kickoff, and USA Today has already unleashed its predictions for what should be yet another epic and memorable campaign.But聽even though fans enjoy seeing what the experts predict every year, we know that every projection is met with harsh criticism. Nate Davis of USA Today Sports projected every team's record for the upcoming season, which you can see below.It's NFL prediction time! @ByNateDavis picks all 267 games (including Super Bowl LIII): https://t.co/0R3nkKYvvs pic.twitter.com/sXQXqJeHxZ— USA TODAY Sports (@usatodaysports) July 19, 2018Obviously, it's surprising to see Davis giving the Seattle Seahawks聽just four wins last season. They lost a handful of their impact players on defense this offseason Cowboys Game Jerseys , but Russell Wilson is among the game's elite quarterbacks and should help them salvage at least a .500 season.Coming off their first playoff berth in 18 years, the Buffalo Bills upgraded at quarterback by signing A.J. McCarron and drafting Josh Allen. However, Davis gives the Bills just three wins in 2018.But other than that, none of Davis' other projections look all too bold. He projects massive turnarounds for the Denver Broncos (5-11 in 2017), and Houston Texans (4-12), which seems possible as long as both teams stay healthy.Nonetheless, the usual critics ripped the USA Today NFL projections.The USA Today NFL Predictions are such a joke.— Christian Lemke (@ChrisLemke23) July 20, 2018Let鈥檚 look at how accurate @ByNateDavis @USATODAY was on his 2017 @NFL predictions?#nope pic.twitter.com/vKzd9qHdJn— Paul Dutzy (@honolulubluefan) July 20, 2018USA Today's NFL predictions are always garbage— Pete (@pdaniels845) July 20, 2018As for Super Bowl 53, Davis projects that the Atlanta Falcons will get over their unbelievable meltdown from two years ago against the New England Patriots. He has Matt Ryan and co. winning Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta Youth Saquon Barkley Jersey , defeating the Los Angeles Chargers. If Davis is right, the Falcons will become the first team to win a Super Bowl in their own city. Again, it's important to know that every expert will be criticized for his or her predictions, with the popular accusation being that they hate your favorite team. At the end of the day, there's only one winner, and only Chargers and Falcons fans will happily agree with Davis' projections.Remember folks, it's only a game, and season predictions are all good and fun. Find us somebody who picked the Philadelphia Eagles to win Super Bowl 52, or a person who had the Jacksonville Jaguars reaching the 2017 AFC Championship. At the end of the day, predictions have nothing to do with what will happen in the 2018 season..
