Backes (rest) will not play Saturday against the Wild, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Both the Blues and Wild are resting a number of key players with their playoff spots secure, while also exhibiting a bit of gamesmanship due to the high probability of the two teams facing each other in the first round. Backes will finish the regular season with 26 goals and 58 points over 80 games.
