Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom skated hard again on Thursday and could be in the lineup Saturday night against Montreal. The Caps certainly could use him.
Dale Hunter says it's an easy decision to turn to veteran Tomas Vokoun in the Capitals' biggest game of the year.
The Capitals can regain eighth place with a win tonight in Boston.
With five games remaining in the regular season the Caps are left fighting for their playoff lives. There are 10 points still on the table and they can't afford to lose any more.
