Streaking Capitals host slumping Blackhawks

Streaking Capitals host slumping Blackhawks

Backstrom's production, or lack thereof, could be attributed to head coach Barry Trotz' opting to seperate Backstrom and Ovechkin to different lines. He's recorded a point in three straight games. The run kicked off when Washington used a picture-perfect, tic-tac-toe passing play to set up its first goal at the 11:54 mark, with Wilson and Ovechkin assisting on Backstrom's fourth goal of the year and his first tally since October 14. "It has to be a sense of relief for him". The Hawks were controlling the puck in their own zone and held the Capitals to just one shot on goal.

Backstrom ended his goal drought at 11:54 of the first when he finished a tic-tac-toe sequence by one-timing Ovechkin's pass past Forsberg for his fourth of the season. "I'm playing with two of the best players in the world".

"It obviously feels good", Backstrom said. Chicago came into the season with massive expectations once again as they have the same core for the most part including Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews who have become synonymous with Chicago hockey but they need some help as they haven't been producing at the clip we are used to seeing and as such the team has suffered and haven't been as consistent as they had once hoped for. "Great way to get it started and we kept rolling".

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Adam Henrique scored his first two goals for the Ducks in his home debut, and Ryan Miller made 29 saves for his first shutout for Anaheim in victory over slumping Ottawa. "You can be misled by the shot (total) or maybe it looked like we had some looks there".

Wilson later added a shorthanded empty-net goal with 2:20 left in the game for the first four-point night of his career.

Washington has won seven of its last eight against the Blackhawks. Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Crawford could return Sunday against Arizona. Crawford has been on injured reserve since November 30 with a lower-body ailment.

Backstrom's goal catapulted the Capitals top-line forward. Oshie missed the game after sustaining an upper-body injury Monday night against San Jose. D Taylor Chorney and C Tyler Graovac were the Capitals' scratches, and the Blackhawks scratched D Michal Kempny, D Jordan Oesterle and C Tanner Kero.
