Video: Nicklas Backstrom Skates for Fifth Straight Day

Photo via

With the Capitals spending their St. Patrick’s Day in Chicago (and its ludicrous dyed-green river), news from Kettler is almost non-existent. Thankfully, our boy Dave provides the skinny on Nick Backstrom, who continues to skate on his own.

Follow us past the jump for videos of Backstrom looking good, taking laps and firing shots.

Very encouraging, but there’s no timetable for a return yet. Still, barring an etbacksay, anyone wanna take a guess on NB19’s first game back?

Have a great St. Patrick’s Day. Get weird, but be safe. Everyone is an O’Vechkin today.


S/T to @daveizzle for hooking us up with the video.
