Woohoo!

It shouldn't surprise anyone, given the records he's broken and the way he's played this season, but Filip Forsberg is now a 20 goal scorer.

With only seconds remaining in the first period against the New York Islanders, Forsberg fired a shot that beat Jaroslav Halak low to the glove side. It put the Nashville Predators on the board, to give them a bit of momentum during the intermission. The Islanders were starting to run away with the score, having a commanding 3-0 before meeting #Scoresberg first hand.

Dat celebration, tho...

James Neal beat him as the first Pred to 20 goals, but can anyone remember a time when Nashville had a kid who they thought could go way beyond that? 30 does not seem like such a far off possibility.

Congrats, kid.
