that call was fine. it was not a benching. the third line was skating well, but Backstrom needed to be there to take the faceoff, because Laich isn't good at them this season. thus Backstrom was put there as the extra man.
yeah, BB could have put Ovi out there in place of a defenseman, but with Wideman and Carlson on the points, they have almost the same firepower from the blueline without the forwards always looking to pass back there to ovechkin.
yes, it was made a bigger deal than it is. no, it was not a message to ovechkin.
