- In my haste today, I forgot to mention Niklas Backstrom is the starter for Minnesota tonight. Somehow my excerpt was deleted or not posted, thanks Steve (Rangersfan527@yahoo.com) for the tip. Josh Harding is listed day-to-day here, leaving the only option rookie Anton Khudobin who Michael Russo mentions in the post will probably backup Backstrom his entire stay.
