When Nicklas Backstrom suffered a neck injury in Russia a month ago, Caps nation was tense. Backstrom, who missed 42 games last year due to a concussion, proved how valuable he was to the organization just by being on the sidelines. The Capitals played some of their worst hockey in several years without their top pivot. What did we learn? Nicky is irreplaceable.
Well, via a new Geico commercial that was released today, we can see just how talented Backstrom is at hockey.
Sure Ovi can notch 9 goals in a game, but can he score 15 goals in 15 seconds? I think not.
Russian Machine Never Breaks is not associated with the Washington Capitals; Monumental Sports, the NHL, or its properties. Not even a little bit.
