Five Questions

1. How does Niklas Backstrom fair in his first start in, well awhile?

2. Graninoville has been on fire lately. Can they keep up the good work?

3. Lots of fans have commented on the fact that Suter and Brodin look gassed at the end of games. How do they look tonight?

4. Nonis and Carlyle are very vocal in their distain of advanced stats. Fletcher and and Yeo are pretty vocal about how helpful they are to the team. Can Yeo and company show the Leafs how badly #fancystats can hurt you?

5. DO the Wild maintain their excellent GAA tonight?
