Point Value = 3 points



Answer the question by commenting below. The first correct answer is the winner. Be as specific as possible. It will be up to the Wild.com judges if your answer is specific enough.

Question 30: In November of 2006, Niklas Backstrom became the first goaltender in the modern NHL era to accomplish what feat?

*Note: First and last names must be spelled correctly.

Winner: Congratulations to "LetsGoWild22," who answered the 30th question correctly. On November 2nd, 2006, Niklas Backstrom stopped 19 shots in relief of Manny Fernandez to beat the Vancouver Canucks. He became the first NHL goaltender to earn his first two wins without starting a game.  

"LetsGoWild22" earns three points, and moves into 6th place in the standings with 20 questions remaining.
