Niklas Backstrom will get the start Thursday for #mnwild vs #coyotes
I don't think that's a surprise to any of us. It's been assumed that Backstrom would be back to starting more now that he's worked on his game, as it was put.
The Wild then play Saturday night in Los Angeles and Sunday night in Anaheim, so I'm sure Theo will play one of those. We just don't know which one yet.
