The Capitals longl wait for Nicklas Backstrom will end tonight when the 24-year-old center returns to the lineup against the Montreal Canadiens.
With players like Alex Ovechkin, Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom, you might think the Capitals, year after year, would be one of the NHLs most successful teams in shootouts.
If you believe Capitals coach Dale Hunter, the return of star center Nicklas Backstrom to the Capitals' lineup will need to wait at least a few more days.
The Capitals and Sabres both entered Tuesday nights game tied at 84 points, each with six games left and their playoff hopes in the balance.
Sorry, but I didnt see this one turning out to be lopsided in either teams direction.
