Minnesota goalie Niklas Backstrom stopped 22 shots before he and the Wild dropped a 3-2 decision to the visiting Boston Bruins in overtime Wednesday night.
Backstrom is now 5-3-2 on the season. His goals-against average is 2.48 and his save percentage, .901. While he didn't have a bad game Wednesday, Backstrom's best days seem to be behind him. He's the No. 2 goalie in Minnesota, behind Darcy Kuemper (stomach illness) and we don't suggest you use him on your fantasy team unless you're absolutely desperate for a goalie. Dec 17 - 11:09 PM
