Preds radio play-by-play man Tom Callahan brings word on tonight's goaltending battle:
Backstrom for MIN and Mason for NSH tonight. Bourque is up for Nashville. Game time 7 pm, pregame 6:30 @1025thegame— predsradio (@predsradio) January 22, 2013
Given that this is Nashville's third game in four nights, it makes sense to let Pekka Rinne take a breather, and prepare for a rematch Thursday against the Blues in St. Louis.
