After a sparkling performance in Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Wild goalie Josh Harding is expected between the pipes for Mike Yeo for Game 2 tonight at United Center.

The Pioneer Press was one of the first to let the public know Harding would be the starter after he took the lion share of shots in the Wild's a.m. practice in Chicago.

CBS Sports is reporting Backstrom is unavailable with the same lower body injury he suffered in pregame warmups Tuesday.

Darcy Kuemper will serve as the backup despite Backstrom hopping a plane to the Windy City.

The Wild will also be missing Jason Pominville for a fourth straight game after L.A.'s Dustin Brown's dirty hit to his head just over a week ago.
