Afternoon Line- David Backes

Backes was thankful that the NHL's Player Safety Department saw the hit on the Capitals' Karl Alzner the way hit did, deciding not to issue supplemental discipline.

"Yeah, it's nine years now and I've had one major penalty that was quickly rescinded right after that," Backes recalled. "Now this one, where I think it's pretty benign — he hops back up and doesn't miss a shift.

"Never looking to hurt anyone out there. The rules are the rules, I guess, and if there's blood, (then the ejection was warranted).
