David Backes (upper) is still being evaluated by the St. Louis Blues, so he wasn't on the ice Wednesday for the team's optional skate.
"There is no health report," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We'll give you a better evaluation tomorrow. We had guys take the day off. A couple of guys got banged up yesterday and took the day off. So, we'll know better tomorrow exactly where the injured guys are at. We really don't know to be honest with you. I would say nobody's ruled out. A couple of guys that got banged up yesterday aren't ruled in yet. We'll get a better evaluation tomorrow. We're expecting that we'll be pretty close to the same roster, but we're not sure yet." It's believed that Backes is being tested for a head and/or neck injury after a collision with Dallas defender Trevor Daley on Tuesday night. Oct 29 - 5:23 PM
