Article about Forsberg's thoughts/ opinions on playing Colorado
Peter Forsberg had plans to meet with some familiar faces Friday night, the likes of Joe Sakic and other old buddies from the Colorado Avalanche.
On Saturday afternoon (2 p.m. ET), Forsberg will be facing off across them with his Philadelphia Flyers, a strange sensation after nearly a decade in Denver.
"It's going to be a little special, I was there for a long time and I know a lot of the guys," the superstar centre said this week. "On the other hand, you get on the ice, you just have to make sure you're professional and do your best and try to make my team win."
And he's also relieved to have hulking defenceman Derian Hatcher as a teammate and no longer as a foe. Hatcher and Forsberg had some legendary battles in the years Dallas and Colorado met in the playoffs.
"I know how hard it is to play against him, so it's great to have him on my side for once," said Forsberg. "When we played in Dallas, it was tough games every time we played against him.
"So I'm really happy to have him on my side."
