News

Backstrom made 35 saves Saturday against the Wild in what may have been his last career game. He earned a 2-1 win.

Impact

It was a fitting way to go out if that's what ends up happening. Backstrom won 413 games and is Minny's franchise leader in starts, wins and shutouts. But he didn't play at all as the team's number three man in 2015-16 until the Flames gave him some time over the last three weeks. "I still love the game, still love the work, still love to be with the guys," said Backstrom, his eyes red and his lip quivering in a post-game interview. "But you never know."
