He might be banged up, but his last game was clearly his best game for a long time, possibly the season. He was blazing around the ice. The day of rest could have done him some good, but he also appears to be shooting the puck more over the past several games. So, even though he's not the same old Backes offensively, he's certainly played well enough overall in recent games that he has no need for excuses.

It's incredibly rare that the Blues play well and Backes or Pietro underperforms. They are the clear leaders of the team from an in-game standpoint.
