Nicklas Backstrom: Playing with a migraine is 'twice as hard'

Here's a look at today's Caps notebook from Gene Wang, who spoke with Nicklas Backstrom about his occasionally-debilitating migraine headaches. And if you haven't had a migraine before (lucky you), Backstrom sums it up pretty well:

"First of all you can't see; like you see blurry," Backstrom said. "Then your body gets numb, and then the headache is like, well, take a normal headache times 10."

More on Backstrom, along with updates on Alexander Semin and Semyon Varlamov, in the notebook.
