Backstrom back in net for Pheonix Coyotes game

After taking Backstrom out of the net for the past six games, the Wild have decided to take him off the injured list and back where he belongs. Josh Harding is still battling with an injured hip so this will be a good break for him to heal up. Niklas Backstrom has been dealing with a few back problems and being sick, but is ready to fight it out with his team.

In the last game against the Philadelphia Flyers, rookie Anton Khubodin had made 38 saves in his first NHL game helping the Wild win 2-1. We may see some great things from Khubodin in the near future if our starting goalies don't come through for the Wild.
