David Backes appears to be moving back to center after spending some time on the wing.
He was between Patrik Berglund and Magnus Paajarvi during Wednesday's practice. "I think we miss Backes in the middle of the ice," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "He did a yeoman's job for us, but at the end of the day, we need more definition in the middle of the ice. We're better when we play with more definition in the middle of the ice. We need him back there. He's hard to play against. ... We want to go with this right now." Backes has two goals in his past three games and seven points in 14 contests this season. Nov 13 - 12:21 PM
