Blues Ground Jets Behind Backes

David Backes scored twice as the Blues notched a 3-1 win over the Jets at Scottrade Center. Brenden Morrow also scored for St. Louis while Jay Bouwmeester had two assists. St. Louis has won eight of nine and plays at Chicago tomorrow.

Blues forward T.J. Oshie didn't skate with the team in last night's win against the Jets. The Olympic hero was instead with fiancee Lauren Cosgrove as the couple welcomed their first child yesterday morning. Lyla Gracie Oshie was born just before 10:00 a.m.
