  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Helper ultimately changed to goal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/17) Backstrom's power-play assist from Tuesday's win over the Flames has been changed to a goal after further review by the NHL.

    The lamp-lighter was originally credited to defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk -- who thought he'd earned his first goal as a member of the Capitals -- but closer examination of the play led to Backstrom picking up his 22nd goal and 78th point on the season. That wasn't all for the star pivot, though, as he delivered two more helpers en route to the latest victory, including another on the man advantage.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Pours on three more assists

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Backstrom dished out three assists -- two on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Calgary.

    He's been on an absolute assist bender in his last four games, helping out on a startling 10 goals in that span, with half of those on the man advantage. Backstrom is now tied with Connor McDavid for the league lead in assists with 57, and he's poised to break the 80-point mark for the first time since 2009-10. As usual, his fantasy owners have enjoyed a smooth ride.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Four-assist night for playmaking wizard

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/17) Backstrom set up four goals in Saturday's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay.

    Backstrom has eight assists in his last four games and 12 points (three goals, nine assists) in his last 10 games. His 54 helpers put him one shy of Connor McDavid for the NHL lead.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Hits 50 assists with Tuesday's trio

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/17) Backstrom handed out three assists -- one on the power play -- in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Minnesota.

    The Swedish playmaker has now hit 50 assists for the fourth straight season and the seventh time in his career, and he's also cleared 70 points for the fourth consecutive campaign. Always an elite point producer, Backstrom's seen a bit of an uptick this year -- with 71 points in 69 games, he's on pace to finish better than a point per game for the first time since 2009-10's 101-point masterpiece.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Another night, another multi-point showing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/6/17) Backstrom collected a goal and an assist during Monday's loss to Dallas to record his 17th multi-point game of the season.

    The veteran continues to provide reliable scoring and is up to 21 goals and 67 points through 65 games. However, he's often priced below the top-tier centers in daily contests, which makes Backstrom a solid value in most matchups. In seasonal settings, he remains an elite offensive contributor.
