  • Nicklas Backstrom was practicing on the top line Saturday between Alex Ovechkin and T.J. Oshie.
    Advice: The trio has seen plenty of time together in the past but not this season as Evgeny Kuznetsov has taken over from Backstrom on the top unit. But new head coach Todd Reirdon could be switching things up and Backstrom could find himself starting on the top line when the puck drops on Sunday. One caveat is that Kuznetsov missed practice on Saturday and is expected to play but do not be surprised if Backstrom starts with Ovie and Oshie Sunday.
