Backes scored his 20th goal of the season Wednesday in a 5-2 loss to Montreal. He was plus-1 with three shots, four hits, and two blocks in the contest.

Backes reaches the 20-goal mark for the fourth consecutive full season (not counting the lockout) and has 41 points on the year. After a scorching hot January and early February, this was his first point in four games. Backes played with T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund in this one and the trio had some chemistry - hopefully it will start another hot streak for Backes.

He's got 19 goals and 40 points in 58 games and should get back on the scoresheet soon enough. He's on track for another 25-goal, 55-point season.

Backes scored the game-winning goal among his four shots, added on a assist, went plus-3 and racked up four PIM in Thursday's win over the Lightning.Now that's cross-category contribution -- but it's something Backes owners should be accustomed to, as their man has provided one of the finest points-and-PIM combos in the league, as usual. After going buck-wild in January, he's calmed down in February, but remains a consistent fantasy contributor.

Backes scored his 18th goal of the season Sunday in a 4-2 loss to Chicago. He took three shots and added four hits and a blocked shot in the contest.

While his recent point streak came to an end, Backes continues to roll offensively - half of his goals and 19 of his 37 on the season have come since the calendar flipped to 2015. The production will flatten out, but Backes is back to being what his owners expected at the start of the year and should finish with 50-60 points and another 25 goal season under his belt.

Backes' nine-game point streak came to an end Sunday in a win over the Caps when he was ejected for boarding on Washington defenseman Karl Alzner. He was assessed 15 PIM and credited with two hits prior to his ejection.

Backes hit Alzner squarely in the back and while it may not result in a suspension the ejection was automatic because Alzner was cut above his eye. In his nine-game point streak Backes wracked up an impressive 16 points (to bring his season total to 35) and it included five multi-point efforts.

Backes picked up his 17th goal of the year Thursday in a shootout win over Carolina to extend his point streak to nine games. He took three shots and added five hits and three blocks on the night.

Backes has eight goals and 16 points during his streak, which is just outstanding. That pace over a full season would produce 145 points. He has accumulated nearly half of his season point total during the past month as he rips up the league.

Backes recorded an assist and four shots on goal in Thursday's win over the Predators to improve his point streak to eight games. He's provided a goal or assist in 10 of his last 11 contests.

More impressive than the streak itself is how many of those games have been multi-point efforts (five). It's added up to seven goals, eight assists, and a plus-11 rating during that stretch. It's safe to say that kind of production plays in any league.

Backes picked up two assists Saturday in a win over Toronto to extend his current point streak to six games and 13 points (seven goals, six assists).

Wow -- he'd stressed his owners with 19 points in his first 38 games. But has turned up the heat to broil in the last half-dozen outings. Enjoy the run.

Backes helped the Blues salvage a point Thursday, scoring a third-period power-play goal that sparked a comeback to push the game to overtime.

All Backes has done over the last five games is score seven goals and tack on four assists. No big deal. This one was actually a step down for him, considering that Backes had collected multiple points in each of the last four. Just one point? Don't hold out on us, David.
