Report: Backstrom questionable for Caps
According to a Tweet from Washington Post hockey writer Tarik El-Bashir, Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom is questionable for Game 1 against the Montreal Canadiens Thursday (7 p.m. ET, VERSUS, TSN) because of an illness.

Caps coach Bruce Boudreau also said there "is no short leash" on goalie Jose Theodore. "He's the guys we're going to go with and see how he goes."
Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
