Blues' Backes out for Game 3 against Blackhawks

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - Blues center David Backes has been ruled out for Game 3 against the Chicago Blackhawks because of an upper-body injury.

St. Louis, however, will have center Patrik Berglund for Monday night's game against the Stanley Cup champions, who trail the playoff series 2-0. Berglund missed three games, also with an upper-body injury.

Backes was wiped out by a big hit from Blackhawks defenseman Bren Seabrook in the third period of St. Louis' 4-3 overtime victory Saturday. The captain was helped off the ice and did not return.

Seabrook received a five-minute major and game misconduct penalty. He then was suspended for three games by the NHL.

Berglund was injured in the third period of St. Louis' 3-0 loss at Dallas on April 12. Berglund had 14 goals and 18 assists this season.
