Sunday's Injury Updates - Backstrom, Bishop, Lidstrom...

Nicklas Backstrom (concussion) has been cleared for contact in practice and he says he hasn't had any headaches over the past week or so since he returned to the ice... good progress here.

The other Niklas Backstrom, the one who plays net, dressed for two games after returning from a groin injury but without even playing he is back on the shelf and the Wild called up Hackett to take his place.

It's officially a concussion for Jared Spurgeon after that hit from Alex Tanguay on Thursday... he's out indefinitely.

Ben Bishop had to leave last night's game due to a LBI, looked like a knee injury. Good thing Anderson is back.

The Hawks Marcus Kruger has concussion symptoms after taking a knock on Wednesday.

Tough break here... Matt Cullen suffered a broken finger in last night's game and that will likely mean the end of his season.

Matt Niskanen missed last night's game and is day-to-day with a UBI.

Returning to action from the injured list yesterday: Mike Cammalleri & Nicklas Lidstrom.
