Is there any better way to spend a Monday night than putting IKEA furniture together with bae and watching hockey?

Well, during tonight’s game between the Washington Capitals and Dallas Stars at Verizon Center, fans were able to so as part of Swedish Heritage Night.

Capitals centre (and Swede) Nicklas Backstrom even scored his 21st goal of the season in the second period.

The second didn’t start off Backstrom’s way, however, as a bad clearing attempt led to this Radek Faksa goal.
