Backstrom and Laich Provide Swedish Lessons

Chatting at 11. Submit questions here.

More Caps-based hilarity from Cabbie's Journey to the Cup, the droll Canadian sporting program featuring one-liners and high-fives from NHL players. In this episode, Nicklas Backstrom and, oddly, Brooks Laich teach our host how to say many valuable phrases in Swedish, mostly related to picking up women. One of Laich's offerings definitely made me lol, but I don't want to give it away.

Plus, Brooks Laich explaining how he works for The Man, below.

If the Caps win tonight, expect to see Mr. Cabbie on the scene in the second round.

"I love ice cream" is a pickup line in Swedish??

Brooksie is pretty impressive there...not bad for a guy from small town Saskatchewan!! (yes, that's how you spell it)

Backstrom's got some beautiful hair.

But Laich is dreamy.

Laich never fails to amuse.

hey it works. trust me, asking a swedish girl if she's a bikini model when you first meet her isn't going to get you any points. saying I love Ice Cream in Swedish does.
