Nicklas Backstrom's day came to a premature end several shifts after New York Islanders winger Anders Lee caught the Washington Capitals center with a hard hit Wednesday.

Lee hit Backstrom early in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series, after which Washington blue-liner John Carlson immediately came to his teammate's defense.

The officials assessed Lee an interference minor for the hit and also gave both Lee and Carlson roughing penalties.

Later in the period, Capitals agitator Tom Wilson dropped the gloves with Lee.

Backstrom initially played through the hit, remaining on the ice for nearly a minute of game time afterward and then logging five more first-period shifts.

However, he didn't emerge for the start of the second frame, and the Capitals later ruled him out for the rest of the contest.

Backstrom ranked second in assists among Washington skaters (42) and third in points (54) during the regular season.

  Panthers avoid elimination, beat Islanders 3-2 in Game 3 TORONTO — Brian Boyle and the Florida Panthers turned the tables on the New York Islanders by playing with more discipline and patience to avoid being swept from the playoffs. Boyle and Mike Hoffman scored goals 2:47 apart, and the Panthers took advantage of several miscues in beating the Islanders 3-2 in Game 3 of their best-of-five preliminary round playoff series on Wednesday. “It's rewarding for us because we're putting the work in and a few mistakes have cost us so far,” Boyle said. “We're not where we want to be in this series, but we can only control today.” Erik Haula also scored and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 20 shots.
