Nicklas Backstrom Geico Commercial

When Nicklas Backstrom suffered a neck injury in Russia a month ago, Caps nation was tense. Backstrom, who missed 42 games last year due to a concussion, proved how valuable he was to the organization just by being on the sidelines. The Capitals played some of their worst hockey in several years without their top pivot. What did we learn? Nicky is irreplaceable.

Well, via a new Geico commercial that was released today, we can see just how talented Backstrom is at hockey.

Sure Ovi can notch 9 goals in a game, but can he score 15 goals in 15 seconds? I think not.

    That’s a scary face Nicky makes at the end. If I was a puck I’d run to the safety of the goal as well.

    That’s the determined face of a Swede who just had his surströmming taken from him. Go Nicky!
