Only one breakaway, the other Suter caught up and was able to shoulder him down without even a shot. The puck in the air, Backstrom didn't even have to move for, as it was batted right into his chest.
Most of his saves were of the routine variety otherwise thanks to the Wild blocking shots, one of which bailed Backstrom out when he was terribly slow going from one post to the other.
Backs played well overall, made the tough save when needed, just wasn't needed much, which is a good thing.
The pk won that game.
