With backup Josh Harding on the injured list while adjusting to medication for multiple sclerosis, Backstrom has been a stalwart for the Wild. Since Feb. 9, Backstrom leads the NHL in wins. With 7:50 left in the second period, as an interference penalty on San Jose's James Sheppard expired, Parise grabbed a slick feed through the slot by Koivu and sent a wrist shot into the top corner of the net that grazed the crossbar as it went in.
