Nicklas Backstrom looking better

From Tarik El-Bashir of the Washington Post:

Nicklas Backstrom, who has been nursing a sprained right ankle since last Thursday, skated on his own for about 10 minutes this afternoon and looked pretty good to me.

I also noticed Backstrom and Alex Ovechkin joking around before Backstrom went onto the ice. At one point, the two of them jumped up in the air for a chest bump. Something tells me Backstrom wouldn’t have done that if he was still hurting.

Good to hear if you are a Caps fan.  It does not seem like the injury is serious at all and Backstrom should be able to take part in camp prior to the season opener.

The Moose head to B.C. today where they will begin four games on the road starting on Friday with the Canucks (of Abbotsford).

Their lineup will be bolstered by the addition of Dominic Toninato who passed through waivers on Wednesday.

The Jets take their act on the road starting with a game tomorrow night in St. Louis against the Blue.

The Moose will be in Abbotsford for a practice on Thursday as they get ready to kick off four away from Manitoba.
