Continued: Wild notes: 'Flyby' celebrations diminishing in popularity

Goalie Niklas Backstrom has started two games since getting hurt Oct. 8 and Josh Harding subsequently catching fire. Coach Mike Yeo is at least contemplating starting the veteran Saturday at Carolina.

“There’s no question I want to get Backy in there, especially [after] that [33-save] game he played in Chicago [Oct. 26],” Yeo said. “I thought he was outstanding and would like to get him playing at that level consistency. We’re a better team if we have both guys going, and we’re going to need both guys.”

 

A team guy

Yeo was impressed by defenseman Clayton Stoner standing up to Calgary’s Tim Jackman on Tuesday. Jackman, who hurt Jared Spurgeon with a check in the second period, slashed and cross-checked leading goal scorer Jason Pominville after a faceoff in the third.

“That’s a team guy,” Yeo said of Stoner. “There’s a lot of debate about fighting right now, but bottom line, regardless of how you do it you have to be there for each other.”

Stoner left Thursday’s game because of a first-period leg injury.

Etc.

• Defenseman Jonas Brodin will have to wear the full face shield to protect his broken cheekbone for up to three more weeks. He said he is getting used to it, but at times it fogs up, which has led to a few glaring turnovers since returning to the lineup four games ago.

• Rookie defenseman Matt Dumba was scratched for a fourth consecutive game Thursday against the Capitals. Nate Prosser replaced injured Keith Ballard.
