Two former division rivals met for a Sunday afternoon game on March 22.

David Backes perfectly summarizes his team’s loss to the Dallas Stars

You could describe the Blues’ loss to the Dallas Stars in a lot of different ways. None of them are positive. Even the team’s lone goal from Patrik Berglund was more humerus (of course Berglund scores in a game that’s well out of reach) than anything. David Backes summed up things nicely: Backes: "They skated all night and we kind of watched." #stlblues — Jeremy Rutherford...

WATCH: David Backes takes a puck to the face

This one is painful to watch. David Backes took a slapper from T.J. Oshie right in the face. He immediately left the game, but returned in the second period sporting a full cage. He then left for the remainder of the night after playing four shifts in the second.
