3 - Number of assists earned by Nicklas Backstrom on Sunday night, marking his 29th career game with at least three assists. That ties him with Sidney Crosby for the most in the League since Backstrom's rookie season back in 2007-08. Backstrom ranks fourth in the League in multi-assist games over that span with 105, trailing only Henrik Sedin (125), Joe Thornton (110) and Crosby (105).
