This photo should win an award. The Caps wives and girlfriends gathered their babies and toddlers together to watch Game Six. The kids – Stella Alzner, Lyla Oshie, Lucca Carlson, Haley Backstrom, and a few others – were dressed in Caps attire and sat on the couch. I’m pretty sure this is the sole reason why the Caps won.
After returning home from New Jersey, Backstrom and girlfriend Liza took their one-year-old daughter to the park. “We were just on a road trip for six days,” Backstrom said. “You’re kind of like, ‘I wonder if she recognize me now?'”
The Swedish dad pushed Haley on a swing and rode down the slide with her. It’s adorable.
“It’s one thing to have a good group of guys on a team,” Backstrom said. “We’re all family, but it’s awesome to come home from games and enjoy her.”
