Nicklas Backstrom found the back of the net during Friday's 5-1 preseason loss to the Carolina Hurricanes.
Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson played in last night's game against the Canadiens, so it was Backstrom's turn tonight. He managed to cut the Hurricanes' lead to 2-1 at the 12:21 mark of the first period, but it's the only offense his team could muster tonight. Backstrom is one of the best playmakers in the league. He had 21 goals and 50 assists in 81 games last season. Sep 21 - 10:47 PM
