Tuesday night, the Caps scored a goal against the Calgary Flames that the NHL credited as Kevin Shattenkirk’s first as a Washington Capital. We broke down the video like the Zapruder film and suggested that Nicklas Backstrom may have gotten a piece of it at the last second. Well, upon further review it seems the NHL is in agreement:
Please note NHL’s scoring change re #Caps third goal last night vs. Calgary. It should now read goal by Backstrom from Shattenkirk & Oshie

We’ll have to wait a little longer to see Shattenkirk’s first goal as a Washington Capital, but in the meantime we can bask in the glorious season that Backstrom is having.
