Backstrom remains out for 4th straight game

Washington Capitals forward Nicklas Backstrom will miss his fourth straight game with a hand injury on Tuesday night, the team announced.

The 30-year-old missed Game 6 of the club's second-round series against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the first two games of the Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Luckily for Washington, the team hasn't missed a beat without their star center, winning each of their last three games.

That being said, his return will certainly be welcomed as he's posted three goals and 13 points in 11 games.
