The SportsXchange

The Washington Capitals are close to getting centers Nicklas Backstrom and Mikhail Grabovski back on the ice.

Backstrom, who left Tuesday's loss to the Los Angeles Kings with a left shoulder injury, said after Thursday's practice that he "absolutely" will play the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

Grabovski has missed 21 of the past 22 games with a left ankle injury. He skated Thursday and said he's "very ready" to return against the Bruins as well, according to CSN Washington. However, the final determination will be made by the team's medical staff before the game.
