Interesting the Wild are throwing Backstrom at us, since Harding's been the guy the previous three meetings this season. Wild are struggling badly since leading the West at 20-7-3. However, 5-16-6 since then and have lost 6 straight. 4-15-0 in games decided before a shootout. They're pretty physical though and play chippy against the Blues. Last time there was that huge hit on Perron right at the outset. Most games against the Wild are annoyingly grinding sandpaper ones that spend the whole game being close contests. This year, anyway. It would be nice to break that chain. Odd to see two back to back day games but good for the Euro fans.
