Are the opinion expressed here a result of the Wild’s reputation or actually watching them play? Every time I have seen them play this season, about 5 games, I have not been overly impressed with their defensive play. Marek Zidlicky gets major minuets on the blue line is not known as a defensive stand out.
Backstrom is going to the all star game. On the league leader lists he is 5th in GAA, 7th in save %, 4th in # of saves and averages more saves per game than Biron. He averages around 27 saves per game so he does get tested.
