Friday the 13th is always good for a scare and boy did it deliver one to Caps fans before Friday's game.

As the Caps took to the ice for warmups, Backstrom came on but very soon went back into the locker room.

Shortly after, the Caps' center was listed as a scratch on the game sheet.

As panic and mass hysteria began to set in, however, the Capitals tweeted out a correction saying that Backstrom was indeed in for the game.

According to a team official, the confusion was due to a mistake by an off-ice official.

Who says nothing weird happens on Friday the 13th?
