David Backes amassed 17 minutes in penalties in his first game back to St. Louis.
He was standing up for current teammate David Krejci when he went after Blues defender Joel Edmundson. Before that incident, Backes was welcomed back with a video tribute and standing ovation from the crowd. "It was special, certainly something I never experienced before," Backes said afterward. "It was great to be back in the building. I think thankfully we jumped out to a decent lead because trying to bottle up everything that was going on on the ice was tough, no question about it."
