  • Backstrom chipped in a pair of assists during Wednesday's Game 4 win over Toronto. After posting 86 points during the regular season, Backstrom has hit the scoresheet in the past three games, netting two goals and three assists. He's the go-to offensive center for the Caps, and his role and production lock him in as a high-floor, high-ceiling option in daily contests this spring.

  • Backstrom scored a goal and added an assist in the first period of Monday's Game 3 loss to Toronto. The two points came in the first five minutes of the game, but the Maple Leafs were able to keep Backstrom at bay thereafter. Still, the star center is up to two goals and an assist through the first three games of the series, and he projects to continue providing high-end offensive numbers going forward. Backstrom is coming off his highest regular-season point total (86) since the 2009-10 campaign, after all.

  • Backstrom scored a goal in Saturday's 4-3 2OT loss to Toronto on Saturday night. It was his first postseason point. Backstrom had an outstanding season and is poised to continue that through the playoffs. The series is tied 1-1; Game 3 will be in Toronto on Monday.

  • Backstrom posted an assist in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs. The 29-year-old has a goal and two assists in his last three games. Backstrom is turning in his best campaign since 2009-10 with 23 goals and 85 points in 79 contests. Second only to Connor McDavid in assists, the Swedish pivot should be off the board early in all fantasy drafts once again next season.

  • Backstrom dished out three assists -- two on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Wild. Backstrom had one helper in each period of regulation. His 14 assists in the past eight games have the veteran Swede just two back of Connor McDavid for the league lead, and he could easily bridge that gap over the remaining seven games with linemates T.J. Oshie and Alex Ovechkin both firing on all cylinders at the moment. Backstrom's over the 80-point mark for the first time since 2009-10, but he'll end up well short of the 101 points he put up in that campaign.
