Niklas Backstrom is scheduled to play the entire game Saturday night against Winnipeg.
This will be a good test for the oft-injured Backstrom. We will all be watching to see how he comes out of this contest and whether his core-strengthening efforts this offseason will finally lead to an end to his abdomen/hip issues. If Backstrom is healthy, he will likely play well enough to grab the lion's share of starts in the Wild net this season. Sep 27 - 12:54 PM
