It appears the impact of Backes’s head hitting the ice is what left him slightly woozy. I’m told Backes was held out of the game for precautionary reasons and is expected to be ok. This is obviously good news for the Blues. His availability for Wednesday in Vancouver will be updated on Monday.
Good news is that Backes is OK. Considering concussions take a few days to register, keep an eye on his status moving forward.
