Peter Forsberg Has Six Points in Game
2 hours, 10 minutes ago
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Peter Forsberg downplayed the significance of breaking one of Wayne Gretzky's records.
All he could think about after a six-point performance Wednesday against the Nashville Predators was how well the Colorado Avalanche played in a 7-3 victory.
"I've been getting a lot of points lately," Forsberg said. "I think the whole team has been playing better. We feel like if we work hard that we have a good chance of winning a game."
Forsberg had a goal and five assists for the most points scored against Nashville in its five NHL seasons. Gretzky, playing for the New York Rangers, had five points — all on assists — against Nashville on Feb. 15, 1999.
Milan Hejduk added two goals and three assists, to match Gretzky's total.
