8 - Number of games with at least one goal and three assists for Nicklas Backstrom since he entered the League (after adding another last night), tied for the most in the NHL over that span (Sidney Crosby).
Backstrom's big night also ties him (with Alex Ovechkin, Eric Staal and Crosby) for second in the League in five-point games over the past seven seasons, two behind Evgeni Malkin.
