Filip Forsberg Scores Twice as Predators Defeat Stars 4-3

January 6, 2024 – Filip Forsberg scored twice and Kevin Lankinen turned away 26 shots as the Nashville Predators defeated the Central Division rival Dallas Stars, 4-3, at American Airlines Center on Saturday.

The victory was a decisively satisfying bounce-back effort from the Predators, who ended their last contest – a 6-3 loss to the Calgary Flames on Thursday – not liking much about their game.

But through a tough seven-goal bout in a decidedly difficult building, Nashville maintained the lead for a full 60 minutes and ultimately left the victors.

“It was a hard hockey game,” Predators Head Coach Andrew Brunette said. “I thought there were some momentum swings, and we hung in there. I think for our group it was a good growing moment for us after going through some games where we lost momentum and you kind of get scared. We were up 2-0 and we were able to find our game again when we lost it a little bit. So, for me that’s a positive.”

The result moves Nashville to 22-17-1 on the season and 10-7-1 on the road.
