Nicklas Backstrom's point drought has reached seven games.
That's the longest cold streak of Backstrom's career. Capitals coach Barry Trotz remains confident in Backstrom though. "Backy has done a really good job," Trotz said. "I know there's a lot been said about not scoring or whatever, to me it's about winning and he's had all the tough matchups while still creating good offense, hasn't got the numbers."
