Senators' Anton Forsberg: MRI on tap for Sunday
Forsberg (lower body) will undergo an MRI on Sunday to determine the extent of his injury, according to a report on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
Forsberg was reported to be able to move his extremities in hospital, so that's a relief after he was stretchered off the ice in Saturday's loss to Edmonton. He was injured when the Oilers' Zach Hyman fell on top of him in the crease after being pushed by an Ottawa defender in a net-front battle. It is believed to be a serious injury -- Forsberg was yelling in pain and medical staff removed his pads before strapping him to the stretcher.... See More ... See Less

Forsberg is likely to continue his hot streak Tuesday in a rematch against the Canadiens.... See More ... See Less

Talbot exited just before the game's halfway point, leaving Forsberg to play the final 31:55 even though Talbot was credited with the win. With Talbot expected to be sidelined through at least the All-Star break, Forsberg will likely get most or all of the starts through early February. Forsberg came in with a 2-0 lead and limited the struggling Islanders offense to a single goal, but he had struggled mightily against far tougher competition before this game, allowing a combined 12 goals to the Avalanche and Jets over his previous two outings....

Senators' Anton Forsberg: Buried by Avs
Forsberg made 26 saves in Saturday's 7-0 loss to the Avalanche.
Colorado scored multiple goals in every period and simply dominated the visitors, and the ugly final result was far more on the Ottawa defense than it was on Forsberg. The veteran netminder had given up only seven goals total in his prior four starts and hadn't allowed more than three since Dec. 8, but on the season he still carries a shaky 3.25 GAA and .902 save percentage....
