G Backstrom out again, Harding gets start for Minnesota Wild in Game 2 against Blackhawks

CHICAGO - The Minnesota Wild will be without goalie Niklas Backstrom and defenceman Clayton Stoner for Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Backstrom was scratched from Game 1 with a leg injury after he hurt himself while he warmed up for the playoff opener. Josh Harding replaced him in the lineup and drew the start again Friday night.

Stoner got hurt during Minnesota's 2-1 overtime loss on Tuesday night, but the Wild have declined to say anything about the injury. Justin Falk will take Stoner's place in Minnesota's lineup.

Wild forward Jason Pominville also was out for Game 2. He missed the last two games of the regular season after he was elbowed in the chin by Dustin Brown of the Los Angeles Kings.
