Capitals coach Dale Hunter says the Boston Bruins are going after the head of Washington center Nicklas Backstrom, who missed half the regular season because of a concussion.
The Boston battled back from behind to beat the Washington 4-3 in game three of their round one match up. Joe Haggerty spoke with Toucher & Rich about all the penalties, some possible flopping and using hatred as fuel.
Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstom received a match penatly after the final buzzer of Monday Night’s Game 3 against the Bruins, and could find himself watching Thursday’s Game 4.
Nicklas Backstrom scored 2:56 into the second overtime Saturday to give the Washington Capitals a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins and tie their first-round playoff series at a game apiece.
It’s that unmistakable time of the year when the city of Boston is abuzz.
Matt Kalman says despite missing one of their better scorers, this year’s Bruins might be in better position to make a deep postseason run.
