The Washington Capitals will have eight players in the World Cup and Nicklas Backstrom believes that is a good thing.
"I think it can only help," he said. "For all the players [in the World Cup], hopefully we'll get used to playing tough games and bring that into season and we can get a good start because of it." Only the Tampa Bay Lightning and Chicago Blackhawks, with 12, will have more players in the tournament. Backstrom is also back on the ice preparing for the World Cup about two weeks earlier than in previous summers. Aug 13 - 1:10 PM
