Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom took sole possession of first place in NHL scoring - at least for now - as his assist gives him 64 points.
Forty-six of those points are assists. Backstrom seemed like an All-Star all season even when he didn't make the team, but now that omission seems extra glaring as his red-hot run continues. Feb 21 - 3:34 PM
