  • Backlund posted an assist, two hits, two PIM and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 9-6 win over the Oilers in Game 1. Backlund set up Andrew Mangiapane for the Flames' second goal right after a turnover in the first minute of play. The 33-year-old Backlund has now gotten on the scoresheet in four of eight playoff contests, amassing three goals, two assists, 21 shots on net, 11 hits and a plus-6 rating. He's a defensively reliable center, so he could see heavy minutes against Connor McDavid, especially when head coach Darryl Sutter can match lines on home ice.

  • Backlund scored a goal on four shots in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Stars in Game 6. Backlund's tallied in three straight games, but unlike the other two, the Flames took the loss Friday. The center is up to four points, 19 shots on net and a plus-4 rating through six playoff contests. He'll likely line up as the second-line pivot again in Sunday's Game 7.

  • Backlund scored an empty-net goal on two shots, logged two hits and added four PIM in Monday's 4-1 win over the Stars in Game 4. Backlund deposited the empty-netter late in the third period to end any chance of a Stars comeback. The goal was Backlund's first point in four playoff games this year. He's been fairly active with 12 shots on net, but Stars goalie Jake Oettinger hasn't made things easy for the Flames.

The 33-year-old center is up to 39 points, 211 shots on net and a plus-18 rating in 80 contests while continually holding down a second-line job.
