It's just us, but we'd preferred that Bruce Boudreau had kept the head games regarding the starting goaltender going until warmups tomorrow night. But playing head games with the status of Nicklas Backstrom, the only player who played all 82 games this season, is fine with us. It may also serve Boudreau well to plant those seeds because Backstrom has not been able to handle top line duties in the playoffs so far in his brief career.
