Nicklas Backstrom has missed two straight games for Dynamo Moscow since suffering a neck bruise on Dec. 26.

It's unclear when he will be able to return as the ailment could be the day-to-day or week-to-week variety, according to a report. Backstrom missed the majority of the 2011-12 campaign with a concussion, so the Washington Capitals will likely monitor the situation closely and so should any potential fantasy owners should the league and players agree to a new CBA soon.

Coach Paul Maurice called him an "option" to play against San Jose. "He feels really good," Maurice said. "So he's been banging on the door a little bit here. He's feeling strong, feeling ready. We needed to push him as hard as we did (Sunday) just to clear up any concerns that we would have. He's very, very close." Laine did some extra skating after Monday's optional session as he prepares to return from a concussion.
