Washington forward Nicklas Backstrom faces a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Tuesday afternoon for the match penalty he received after cross-checking Boston's Rich Peverley in the waning seconds of the Bruins' 4-3 Game 3 victory Monday night at Verizon Center.
Backstrom is suspended for Game 4 pending a review of the incident by the League's Department of Player Safety.
It was kind of touching. I didn't know really what to expect. I'm very appreciative and thankful for the people that supported me in my time here ... as I said, we'll move back to the area at some point in our life.
