  • Backstrom extended his point streak to five games and 11 points with his third goal of the season in Saturday's 8-2 loss to the Flyers. Backstrom was a surprising zero rating on the game, which is pretty remarkable given the number of pucks surrendered by the Caps. His 11 points on the season are good for a share of the league lead with teammate Evgeny Kuznetsov.

  • Backstrom had a goal and three assists Friday in a 5-2 win over the Devils. The Capitals offense was on fire in Newark, and nobody was hotter than Backstrom. He was involved in all but one goal and had three points on the power play. At 10 points already this year, he's off to an outstanding start.

  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Will play Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Contrary to a previous report, Backstrom will play Friday against the Devils, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The announcement that Backstrom was scratched from the lineup was evidently the result of an error on NHL.com's official roster report, but the Swedish pivot will slot into his usual spot in the Capitals' top six and first power-play unit against New Jersey. The 29-year-old pivot has enjoyed a great start to the campaign, racking up one goal and five assists through the first four games.

  • Backstrom (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup for Friday's game against the Devils, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The nature of Backstrom's issue remains a mystery, but the Capitals will have to try and find a way to generate offense without one of their best centers against Cory Schneider and the Devils on Friday. Washington should update Backstrom's status ahead of Saturday's game against the Flyers.

  • Backstrom had an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Penguins. The 29-year-old pivot is one of the more reliable playmakers in the league, and his four helpers in four games certainly bear that out. A fixture in Washington's top six and a key cog in its potent power play, he's a must-start every night.
