Nicklas Backstrom did not participate in the Capitals' morning skate in Pittsburgh Monday, triggering significant line changes from coach Barry Trotz ahead of Game 6.

Suffering an upper body injury in the Caps' Game win on Saturday, Backstrom left in the third period and did not return.

Backstrom hasn't been officially ruled out, though. Trotz says he will be a game-time decision.
