Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg scored a natural hat trick against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre on Tuesday. 

Forsberg scored on a power play at 5:46 of the first period, and at 3:40 and 5:36 of the second period to give the Predators a 3-0 lead. 

It is his first NHL regular-season hat trick; he had one in Game 5 of the Western Conference First Round against the Chicago Blackhawks last season. 

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Filip Forsberg is the fifth player in franchise history to have a natural hat trick. The last one was forward James Neal, who did it against the Chicago Blackhawks on Oct. 23, 2014. 

Forsberg has 23 goals in 61 games this season, with five goals in his past five games.
