Last puck of the season

It wasn't until a moment ago, as I was importing this picture, did I realize that one of these two pucks signed by Washington's Nicklas Backstrom was the last one of the 2008-09 hockey-hounding campaign.

For the record, it's the new-look Capitals logo puck, on the left, that's the 330th of the season and 1,867th of the collection.

Backstrom, not to be confused with Minnesota's Nicklas Backstrom, signed it Thursday before boarding the team bus at gametime. He signed the other during Washington's morning skate.

Former Lightning players Olaf Kolzig, traded to Toronto, and Mark Recchi, in the playoffs with Boston, signed the first pucks of the campaign back in late August.
