Wild look to roll a 7 against Phoenix


It sounds like Xcel Energy Center might be the place to be tonight.

That’s where the Wild will try to stretch their winning streak to a season-high seven games.

They’re skating against Phoenix, losers of six straight.

Niklas Backstrom will be in goal for the Wild.

Also: Cal Clutterbuck is back in the lineup after a brutal collision with the net in Monday's win against Dallas. He tells Fox Sports North his right leg is "a little painful," but will be available to play tonight.

As for Backstrom, even though he gave up four goals against the Stars, he's a lights-out 14-3-1 with a 2.10 GAA over his last 18 games.
