ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -Minnesota goalie Manny Fernandez aggravated his sprained left knee in Tuesday's game at St. Louis, leaving his status in doubt for the rest of the Wild's road trip.
Fernandez was questionable for Thursday's game at Colorado, team spokesman Aaron Sickman said Wednesday. Niklas Backstrom would replace Fernandez if he can't play, and Josh Harding could be recalled from the minors.
Fernandez was initially hurt in Minnesota's game on Jan. 20 against Dallas, and he returned to action one week later with the benefit of the All-Star break.
Fernandez is 22-16 with a .911 save percentage and a 2.57 goals-against average this season.
