    Default Capitals says they 'disagree' with NHL's 1-game suspension of Backstrom in Bruins series

    ARLINGTON, Va. - The Capitals say they "disagree with the NHL's decision to suspend" centre Nicklas Backstrom for Game 4 of Washington's first-round playoff series against the Boston Bruins.
    In a statement issued by the team Wednesday, the Capitals say: "We do not understand why a suspension was imposed in this case" and other episodes in the series weren't reviewed by the league.
    Backstrom, for his part, says his cross-check of Rich Peverley at the end of Game 3 on Monday "was stupid on my part."
    He will miss Thursday night's game in Washington. The Capitals are accustomed to playing without Backstrom, who sat out 40 games with a concussion during the regular season.
    Boston leads the best-of-seven series 2-1.

    I thought the suspension wasn't long enough.
