Niklas Backstrom spent his offseason in Finland strengthening his core muscles and increasing his flexibility so as to avoid the abdominal injuries that have plagued him the last two seasons.
It seems to have had a positive effect as Backstrom looked healthy Friday and poised to get his career back on track. "I feel pretty good,’" said Backstrom. "Probably the next couple of days, I’ll find out more about how I feel and how the body will react.’’ If he can truly stay healthy, we like Backstrom's chances of regaining Minnesota's starting goalie position.
