Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Hockey wizard Filip Forsberg brought his antics above the frozen floor, juggling the puck around defenders in the Nashville Predators' recent win.

The Predators star showed off his skills in the second period of the 4-1 victory against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

Nashville and St. Louis were tied at 1-1 about six minutes into the bridge frame when Forsberg received the puck with the Predators on the attack. He gathered a pass along the right flank before flipping it into the air.

Forsberg casually bounced the puck off of his stick while between Blues winger Zach Sanford and center Ryan O'Reilly until flipping it down the ice. He was called for a high stick on his final tap.

He went on to give the Predators a 2-1 advantage about seven minutes later. The Predators got two more scores from Austin Watson and Ryan Ellis in the third period to come away with the victory.

Forsberg -- known for his dominant dangles -- has 14 goals and six assists on the season.
