Article from (José Theodore Has Wild In Playoff Race)

Thanks to Berni for pointing me in the direction of this article today on

For a guy who was picked up almost as an afterthought by the Minnesota Wild, Theodore has turned out to be invaluable.

Theodore started the season seeing only occasional playing time behind Niklas Backstrom. But with Backstrom troubled by hip problems, Theodore has been seeing more playing time – and has been making the most of his opportunities.

The 2002 Hart Trophy winner was at his best last week, going 3-0-0 for the Wild which allowing just two goals on 84 shots against. He capped his week with a 26-save shutout at Pittsburgh on Saturday.

In all, Theodore has won his last four starts and is 8-5-2 with a 2.46 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
