Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom was hot Monday night, making 29 saves in the Wild's 4-1 triumph over the Panthers in Florida.
His performance against Florida should perhaps not have come as a surprise as he is 6-0-1 against the Panthers. He also is 4-0 in Florida. His performance Monday was a relief for him as he turned in a clunker in his last game, a 4-3 overtime win in Winnipeg on Nov. 16. He was pulled in that one. On the season, Backstrom is now 3-2-0 and has a goals-against average of 2.28. His save percentage is .906. He isn't a good fantasy option, despite his history of success against the Panthers.
