In a Game 6 where the Capitals can break the Pittsburgh curse and close the series out, they will have to do so without Forward Nicklas Backstrom.

Backstrom has been ruled out of Game 6 with a hand injury.

The Capitals’ Forward was injured in Game 5 when he blocked a shot in the hand and did not play the final fourteen minutes.

He has proven to be productive this post season with 3 goals and 10 assists.

With Game 6 in Pittsburgh, Washington did not need this set back to occur.
