So Backs isn't gonna go to Dallas most likely, as expected.

Finally, Backs gets a game off. Long over due for it the way he's been lately. Honestly I'd like to see him sit both Friday and Saturday, but we all know that he's starting on Saturday.

We love you, Backs.
Much needed break.
Will Kuemper start tomorrow, or Hackett?

I'd go with Kuemper, Hackett did just let in like 6 goals.

I'd love to see Backs get about 3 games off. Let Kuemper, Hackett and Harding get aother start. ( I know it won't happen but, a guy can wish right)

Well, considering the fact that last time we saw Harding he was sucking majorly, I definitely don't wish that at all.

with the playoff race this tight there's no chance they sit backs more than one game in a row.
Would make it interesting if whoever starts in Dallas had a high-workload shutout though...

Another reason why the NHL is better than the NBA. If an NBA team did this, the coach would be fined for not playing his best players, even though he's looking out for his team's best interests.

I love Pop so much, he's hilarious. Best was when he rested Tim Duncan, coach has to say why they Didn't play (DNP), and he wrote "DNP-Old"

Yes, Backs needs some rest. You can tell very early in the game if he's sharp or not. Look at the game stoppages and how fast/slow he rises up while using his stick for a support.

How poised he is? How positioned he is? Lateral movement, recovery etc. He's not fast, he's the Heatley of the goalies. But when he is ON everything just happens with ease. When he's off, you can feel the struggle in your bones.

Call me delusional, but after a couple of minutes you can tell if Backs is IN the game or not. I mean, he's not that bad when he's off. But still. He's had his workload. A couple of days will not harm anyone. I think Backs has already played more games than they've planned.

Backstrom is Backstrom. He's pretty much guaranteed to give up one goal a game no matter what, the rest depend on whether or not the D lays him out to dry.
Last night, one goal was his fault. The rest he was laid out to dry. Same with Dallas. Etc, etc.

Saturday's a big game... he's got a couple days off to stay at home and relax. I think it's as much a mental relaxation he needs as a physical one. I think he'll be good to go come Saturday night.

I'm in total agreement. When Backs goes down early and flops around on seemingly routine saves, he's gonna give you a poor game. That Chicago game where he let in 4 goals in the 1st period was a prime example. You could tell after the 1st goal he was off, and after the 2nd goal he was REALLY off.

So, does Backs buy a cold six pack of his favorite Finnish beer, make a big bowl of popcorn, build a fire, cuddle with his snuggly-blanky and watch the game on his 80" Toshiba Regza tonight?
