Backstrom finds his touch in Caps win
“I really just didn’t have a good angle on my backhand more than anything - I wasn’t trying to be fancy,” said Morrison, who added that he last scored a goal like that with Penticton of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League some 17 years ago. “I was just reacting. A lot of guys do that in practice just fooling around, but in the game you’re not usually set up for it.”
It was Morrison’s first goal in nine games, though he has had several prime opportunities nullified by superb goaltending and has missed a couple of open nets.
Making his fourth start of the season, Neuvirth helped withstand the Sabres’ second-period charge and finished with 32 saves for his second win in as many games.
“He’s getting better each game,” Boudreau said. “We wanted to see if he was going to grow, and I thought it was better than the Edmonton game because there were more chances. He got stronger and made big saves at right times and smothered pucks - you could see that some day he’s going to be a really good goalie.”
