Nashville Predators score 3 in 2nd period, beat Capitals 5-2

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Filip Forsberg has scored so well coming off back-to-back hat tricks, the Nashville forward had the Washington Capitals watching closely every time the Swede touched the puck.

Forsberg scored the winning goal and had two assists as the Predators scored three in the second period in beating the Capitals 5-2 on Saturday.

The Swede missed becoming the first in NHL history with a hat trick in three consecutive games. He still notched his seventh goal in three games as Nashville won its second straight and third in four games. Forsberg's first assist came on the first of Roman Josi's two goals.
