News

Backstrom's power-play assist from Tuesday's win over the Flames was ultimately changed to a goal after further review by the NHL.

Impact

The lamp-lighter was originally credited to defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk -- who thought he'd earned his first goal as a member of the Capitals -- but closer examination of the play led to Backstrom picking up his 22nd goal and 78th point on the season. That's wasn't all for the star pivot, though, as he delivered two more helpers en route to the latest victory, including another on the man advantage.
