Nicklas Backstrom still hasn't gotten over Washington's Game 7 loss to Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs.
The Caps found themselves down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series against the rivals, but they managed to fight back to tie the series at three. Unfortunately, things didn't end well for them in that do-or-die game. "I think that when it comes to the playoffs it shouldn't be about individuals," Backstrom said. "It should be about the team and how we lose as a team. How we acted in Game 7, I think that's telling everything. They absolutely outplayed us in Game 7 at home. That shouldn't be the case."
