NESN.com Photochop: Why Is Nicklas Backstrom So Happy?

Nicklas Backstrom has enjoyed happier days than he will on Thursday. That’s because the Washington forward will be sitting out Game 4 of the Bruins-Capitals series after being suspended one game for cross-checking Rich Peverley at the end of Game 3.

Once upon a time, Backstrom basked in the glow of a game-winning goal and looked awfully happy. Since then, however, he hasn’t had much to smile about and will probably be looking pretty grim while missing out on all the fun during the next game in a hotly contested playoff series.

Maybe he’s just happy because Professor Harold Hill gave him a turn to lead the River City band.
