Backstrom netted the only goal of Game 6, leading the Capitals to a series win over the Flyers.

Impact

Backstrom one-timed a deft Marcus Johansson feed for the game-winning tally. The Swede had a late start to the 2015-16 campaign following offseason hip surgery, but still managed to play in 75 games -- not including the playoffs -- picking up 20 goals and 50 assists in that span. Backstrom remains an elite forward as the Caps gear up to face the Penguins for the second round of the postseason.
