Nicklas Backstrom registered a pair of assists in Monday's 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Final.
Backstrom picked up the primary assists on both of T.J. Oshie's goals. Oshie's first tally (power play) gave the Capitals a 1-0 lead at the 15:12 of the mark of the second period, while his empty-netter late in regulation put the score out of reach. Backstrom finished the night with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes and four hits in 18:22 of ice time. He's up to three goals and 12 assists in 14 games this postseason. This best-of-seven series is all tied up at three. Game 7 will be played in Tampa Bay on Wednesday night. The winner of that game will face the Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Final. May 21 - 11:11 PM
