Foppa Can Influence The Game

Witnessing many a Colorado/Wings playoff matchup, I have watched Forsberg take over a game and a series. Does he have it in him to do it again? from Phil Coffey of NHL.com,
When the Flyers invested in Forsberg at the start of the regular season, they were banking on getting a big-time player who would deliver when the chips were down. And, so far, Forsberg has done just that. For fans in the East, seeing Forsberg during an entire season has been a revelation. He played his rookie season with the Quebec Nordiques before the franchise moved to Colorado, so many Forsberg moments came through video replays or word of mouth. Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock, who saw plenty of Forsberg up close and personal when he coached the Dallas Stars, chuckles as he fields question after question about Forsberg's immense talents. "Remember, I've seen him for years in Colorado," Hitchcock said. "Having coached against him (in the West), this is the way he plays in the playoffs. It's not surprising."
