  Backstrom played through multiple fractures in finger during playoffs The Washington Capitals have been tearing D.C. up with their epic Cup celebrations over the last few days. However, one of their star players was probably just trying to numb the pain from a lingering postseason injury. Nicklas Backstrom missed the final game of the second round and the opening three games of the Conference Finals with an upper-body injury. So on Wednesday, Backstrom revealed to the media that he suffered a couple fractures in his finger, according to Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports.

Nicklas Backstrom and the Washington Capitals found the secret formula to winning the Stanley Cup, and apparently, it was in their back pockets the entire time.

"Finally, we started playing hockey like we can party," Backstrom said at the Capitals' Stanley Cup parade Tuesday, according to Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press. "So that's a good thing."

If this past week has been any indication, the Capitals' partying ability has reached elite status, much like their play on the ice throughout the postseason. They've been partying like nobody is watching, even though D.C. has had a front-row seat for the glorious show.

The only question is, why didn't the Caps figure out this winning recipe earlier? They could've been a dynasty by now.
