Backes Leads Way on Captains Night

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

ST. LOUIS - How did our captain celebrate Captains Night?

With his first Gordie Howe Hat Trick, that's how.

With 11 former captains in attendance, David Backes put on a show Saturday with a power-play goal, a fight with Stars captain Jamie Benn, and an assist on Vladimir Tarasenko's 17th goal of the season.

The Blues would eventually hand the League-leading Dallas Stars their first shutout loss of the season, thanks in part to Backes leading the way.

So hats off to you, Cap'n. Barclay Plager would be proud.
