Roster Update: Tarik El-Bashir (Twitter) reports that Nicklas Backstrom, the Capitals' Swedish superstar & 1st line center, was injured in Sunday's game against Boston. Bruce Boudreau reportedly said that he is "questionable" for Thursday's game, a first-round playoff match against the Montreal Canadiens. Backstrom scored a career-high 101 points this season, good for 4th overall in the NHL. Get better soon Nicklas! We need you!
Update: Bruce Boudreau has clarified his previous comment; Nicklas Backstrom is merely ill. He is not injured. This is very good news.
