Blues' Backes (Head): Eight Hits In Return
Backes (head) returned to action Friday night. He played 21:35 and fired two shots on net, laid eight hits and finished minus-2.He seemed a half-step out of sync early, but by the second period, he had the jets fired up. It's only a matter of time before he nets a point or two. That is, if the Blues can come back in this series. They are down 3-2 to the Blackhawks.
