Nicklas Backstrom skated for a few minutes today, but Bruce Boudreau said he is not going to play tonight against Boston because he has a cold. Viktor Kozlov also skated today — the first time he’s been on the ice since feeling tightness in his groin prior to the game Monday in New Jersey.

Boudreau said Tom Poti is out because he’s already played two games this week, and being the elder statesman didn’t need the work.
