Harding is a better goaltender than Backstrom. That's all I've got.

Definitely start Harding next game. 59 minutes of agony (minus Harding) ended with a huge comeback win. Way to hang in there Wild!

WOW! The mild should send the refs a thank you card for that win! Well I can rest easy knowing that come playoff time the mild will be in the toliet with the rest of the losers in the NHL, and the Mighty Wings will still be playing :), you mild fans are such kool-aid drinkers, you really should expect more from your sports teams!

Time for PMB to sit, his head is just in the game. Bring up Wellman. Sadly Zid ans Schultz have been less than impressive as well. Great finish tonight, thanks to Harding for the opportunity, great finish by the top line.

Resdive, last time I checked...we weren't on a five game losing streak. Not saying it won't happen but, the better team (or luckier) won tonight. Harding is doing great but I am a little reluctant to suddenly think that Backstrom is expendable. Harding has never posted a winning season but, then again, he's never had the opportunity to play a lot of games when you're backing up a guy like Backstrom. If he can post a season like or better than Theodore did last year, I'll feel better.

resdive1972 - lol... hmmm 5 of the last 6 points go to the Wild... no doubt the Wild are mediocre at best but if the Wings keep dropping games to such easy opponents and I doubt the post season will be very long for them.

Oh wow, do you guys even know hockey? I guess not, being that you are mild fans! You come to the table with a 5 game losing streak, that's it? Try again and come back later, or better yet we will talk in April, but then again you guys won't be following the mild, becasue they will be playing insignificant games :) But hey you guys have the linx, or lynx, I think they play soccer or lacrosse, not sure :) hahaha!

YEO, I think you have no choice but to RIDE the hot goalie. No brainer. Backes would agree. Fans approve.
