Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom will play their 900th career game together Friday against the Devils
Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom are one of the best tandems in the NHL. And Friday against the New Jersey Devils, the longtime teammates will play their 900th career game together.
“I actually had no idea 900 was coming up. It’s pretty… it’s a long time,” a smiling Nicklas Backstrom said Thursday after Capitals practice.
