You can usually find Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom on the ice quietly dealing out apples like he’s at a farmer’s market. But on Friday night after Nicky delivered a golden delicious pass to Jason Chimera which led to a power play goal, he decided to expand his skill set and lower the boom on fellow Swede and future Olympic teammate Niklas Kronwall. Awkward.
Look at this hit.
That’s Christina Aguilera Dirrty right there and no, I’m not calling the hit illegal.
Is there anything Nicky can’t do?
Need more of this, from everyone on this team.
I love that Ovi looks back to admire Nicky’s powerfowarding. Life is fleeting men, we must enjoy art when we see it!
I think this is Nikolas telling the team it is time to wake up…good for him – want to see more heart from the other guys.
Who knew? Keep clobbering ’em, Backie!
Is that the first time someone has Kronwalled Kronwall?
Is this the first time Kronwall has been Kronwalled?
Nah. He gets caught like that quite often as he’s trying to clear the puck. Great step-up by Nicky.
“That’s Christina Aguilera Dirrty right there”
(I approve, enthusiasticlaly)
