Nicklas Backstrom is a prime candidate to be a replacement all-star after Thursday's news that Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin will miss the Jan. 25 classic in Columbus.
Backstrom has had a terrific season thus far with 15 goals and 47 points in 46 games. The 27-year-old has been an essential part of the Caps' season, helping the team build a 12-point cushion on the Metropolitan's final playoff spot. Backstrom has never been to the all-star game before. Jan 22 - 8:15 PM
