Niklas Backstrom stopped 14 of 16 shots he faced in Minnesota's 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Sunday.
Backstrom started his first game since January and didn't really look out of place. He wasn't very busy today, as Minnesota dominated 41-16 in shots. The 36-year-old was beat in the first period by Tyler Toffoli, and in the third period by Tanner Pearson. Backstrom is an aging goaltender who isn't a good bet to stay healthy. The emergency of Darcy Kuemper also doesn't help Backstrom's cause. Oct 19 - 6:10 PM
