As it is, a RH shot has to pass across his body, blind if he doesnt want to telegraph it. A longer pass, that everyone already knows is coming. Make the harder pass for Nick, not the RHD.
The pass from Backstrom to a right shot stays much more to the outside and is much less likely to be tipped/intercepted by the defender than if that pass was going to a left shot. And the right shot can one time it fairly easily while a left shot would need to try to do that across his body, which is really tough.

Plus the right shot pass to Ovechkin comes at an angle he can step into. If that pass is coming from a left shot it is coming more from behind him, which is also really tough to one time.

Draw it out on paper and those angles change a lot.

Hopefully this links to the right moment, if it doesn't, fast forward to about 1:10. That's the type of play that could not be executed with a LH at the point. Same with the goal starting around 2:05. Similarly all those one timers from Green to start the video wouldn't work with a LH at the point.

Even better than Backstrom at that role, which is really saying something.

He really did. Too bad such a train wreck off the ice.

Three times sounds about right; during the first period, during the second period, and during the third period.
