No Nicky?

Well, the bad news came...

It will mean that Nicklas Backstrom will miss tonight's game against the Edmonton Oilers, but we couldn't get over the use of the term, "keep it completely quiet" by Coach Bruce Boudreau.  Ah, but apparently Backstrom is quite the cut-up in the locker room with his SeƱor Wences impersonations...

Players were asking him to knock it off.

It really isn't a laughing matter, though, what with Backstrom being the first line center and having never missed an NHL game -- 313 regular season games, 28 playoff games.  He's been there for every one of them.

Hope it's "s'alright" soon.
