David Backes potted a marker in the St. Louis Blues' 5-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.

The center has five points over his last three games and now has 24 goals and 54 points in the campaign. Add 97 penalty minutes, and you've got yourself a pretty valuable fantasy player. David Perron (19th) had the other goal. Penalty-minute collector Scott Nichol had 21 and was a minus-two.
