Niklas_Backstrom_2013 [1]Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom has been ruled out of tomorrow’s game against the Panthers after getting bowled over last night against Toronto, the Minnesota Star-Tribune reports.

Backstrom Wednesday’s contest following a first-period collision with Nazem Kadri.

The Toronto forward was given a goalie interference minor on the play, and had phone hearing this morning with the NHL’s department of player safety regarding his actions.

The 35-year-old ‘tender has lost his No. 1 gig go to Josh Harding and Wednesday night’s start marked the first time he’d played since surrendering five goals on 28 shots in a loss to Chicago on Oct. 28.
