That Nicklas Backstrom has been quiet lately? In the last five games he has had no goals and only two assist; In fact since November 4th Backstrom has had no goals. He however has raked up 8 PIM. As of last game he has broken even in +/- and had 9 shots on goal in those five games.
He’s tied with Green for fourth in assists in the over all league though. Not like Backstrom is in a slump but he’s very quiet lately. He’s been a little more gritty however and aggressive. If you look past stats and to what you see when you watch the games Nicklas doesn’t seem to be playing his normal style.
I don’t know what to make of this. Maybe everybodies favorite little Swede is trying to pick up too much with every body injured. What ever the reason I hope we see Lars Nicklas back to his normal self soon.
And, on that note I think the blog has been awfully sensible lately so I think I’ll bring you a post of “Weird and Wacky Search Terms” to shake off the “adults” soon.
