St. Louis Blues captain David Backes was sidelined during Game 3 with an injury after suffering from a big hit delivered by Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook in Game 2 of their opening-round playoff series. Whether Backes will be back on the ice on Wednesday remains to be seen.

Blues head coach Ken Hitchcock addressed the media on Tuesday afternoon and said there is no update on Backes; he will have more information on Wednesday prior to the start in Game 4.
