  • Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Overtime hero Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/18) Backstrom scored in overtime and had an assist Sunday against the Blues.

    Backstrom recently went through a four-game pointless drought, but he's racked up seven points in his last three games and now has 35 points (nine goals) in 41 contests this season. His production may be down slightly this year, but Backstrom's offensive talent and close to point-per-game pace make him a must-own in almost all fantasy settings.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Two key assists in overtime win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/3/18) Backstrom (illness) dished out two assists in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime win over the Hurricanes.

    It's a good thing Backstrom was able to suit up, as he assisted on a pair of pivotal goals by linemate Alex Ovechkin, who tied the game in the third period and won it in overtime. The Swedish stud's total of 25 helpers in 40 appearances is actually pretty disappointing given his past output, though any shortcomings on Backstrom's end are being nicely masked by Ovechkin's league-leading 26 goals.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Gearing up Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/2/18) Backstrom (illness) will play on the first line Tuesday against the Hurricanes, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Backstrom had four straight games without a point before a Dec. 30 matchups, when he poured one goal and two assists on the Devils. He'll likely slot back into the top power-play line for a juicy matchup against the Hurricanes, who are tagged with the 24th-ranked penalty-kill unit.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Game-time decision Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/2/18) Backstrom is ill and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday night's game in Carolina, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

    Backstrom has gone on stretches of success and struggle throughout the season and it looked like he may have just been starting a run of the former after posting a multi-point effort for the first time in nine games Saturday. Look for updates on the Swede's status prior to the 7:00 ET puck drop.

    Capitals' Nicklas Backstrom: Three-point effort snaps four-game slump

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/30/17) Backstrom scored a goal and added two assists in a 5-2 win over the Devils.

    The points snapped a four-game scoring slump. Backstrom's season has been an odd one. He has delivered seven multiple-point games (19 points), but just 12 points in the other 32 games. Right now, Backstrom is trending toward the worst full season of his career.
