Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Sitting out against Kings

Backstrom (upper body) is ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Backstrom will miss his seventh straight game, and Lars Eller is expected to center the second line again. Considering Backstrom was a game-time decision for this contest, it appears he has a good shot to play Friday against the Ducks.
