Here was a Russo tweet from after the Wild's win today over Tampa Bay where Backstrom had 37 saves:

#mnwild C John Madden on Backstrom/Theodore: "I don’t think there’s another team in the league getting quite the goaltending we’re getting."
Jose Theodore had to be at his best for his first victory with Minnesota -35 stops in a 3-2 victory in Columbus. How good was he? A report on the game described him as "stupendous" in the second period when his team was outshot 16-3. He's 1-1 with the Wild.
