ARLINGTON, Va. — The Capitals released the following statement Wednesday on the suspension of Nicklas Backstrom. The center was suspended for Game 4 after his cross-check to Rich Peverley [1]‘s face at the end of Game 3.

“We disagree with the NHL’s decision to suspend Nicklas Backstrom. This has been a competitive and physical series, and we do not understand why a suspension was imposed in this case while other incidents in this series have not been reviewed. Our singular focus is on Game 4, and we look forward to the energy that our great fans provide.”
