Nicklas Backstrom will travel with Capitals to Boston

Nicklas Backstrom will make the trip with the rest of the Capitals to Boston this afternoon, according to a team spokesman.

This development comes a day after Backstrom, who has missed 39 games with a concussion, cleared his neuropsychological test and five days after he was cleared for full participation in practice with no limitations.

The Capitals are holding an optional skate at KCI before their flight to Boston and while many aren’t expected to take part, Backstrom is already on the ice marking the 15th time in the past 16 days he has been on the ice.
