Ilya Bryzgalov is in net tonight for the Wild. This is an upgrade for them in net, at least as far as a back-up goes. Niklas Backstrom has had an awful year, and if the Wild would like to make it past the first round of the playoffs, they need to avoid a debacle like last season.
If the playoffs started today, they'd be playing the Blues in the first round, so thank goodness their backup will be wearing these for pads tonight (one assumes):
