- Boston will try to avoid its first consecutive defeats since October.
- The Bruins are 14-2-1 at home.
- The Wild are ranked second behind the Bruins with a 2.26 team GAA.
- Backstrom made 29 saves in his only visit to Boston, a 2-1 Minnesota win on March 8, 2007.
- The Wild have never lost at TD Banknorth Garden, winning all four visits as part of their 7-1-0 record all-time against the Bruins, who have scored 13 total goals in the series.
- Stephane Veilleux is sick. Derek Boogaard has an upper body injury that’s keeping him out of a second straight game tonight. (Anyone else think it's from his beating of Jody Shelley?)
Questions to Answer
- Apparently Manny was a bit moody talking to Russo, Shipley and Tom Reid. Will the Wild get in his head?
The Wild have played 3 solid games in a row on both ends of the ice. Will that continue tonight?
Is tonight the night that the Wild's streak at TD Banknorth Garden ends?
Will Benoit Pouliot perform well while being out of the doghouse for one night?
Will we watch Kessel and Wheeler, then look at Mariucci Arena and ask "What if?"
