Nicklas Backstrom played what the two Capitals' beat writers, from the Washington Post and the Washington Times, are calling the best game they have seen from any Capital this season. That's saying something considering Ovechkin plays for this team and he had 56 goals, but they're probably right. Backstrom had three assists and was the best player on the ice every single time he was out there. He was marvelous. Even Caps coach Bruce Boudreau was at a loss for words.
