Claritin? Migraine Medication? keeps Backstrom from Gold Medal Game
I've seen reports of migraine medication, and now cold medication, specifically Claritin.
Now, reports are filtering in that it was announced pregame that he would miss the game due to a migraine, but he actually was not permitted to play by the IOC due to testing positive for a banned substance.
More information is sure to surface in the next hours, but after the domination of the Canadian hockey players over Sweden in today's game, we will never know whether the presence of Backstrom would have made the difference.
