Backstrom To Start Against Nucks

Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo has confirmed that goaltender Niklas Backstrom will get the start tonight against the Vancouver Canucks. Backstrom is 11-13-6 with a 2.71 goals against average, a .958 save percentage and one shutout in 31 games.

The team will roll out the same lineup as last night in Nashville, so tonight’s healthy scratches will be forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Mikael Granlund and defenseman Nate Prosser.
