Blues forward David Backes was making progress Sunday after suffering an upper-body injury Saturday night in Philadelphia.
Backes was injured in the second period of the Blues' 4-2 win, when he collided with Flyers defenseman and former Blue Chris Pronger. Backes appeared to hit his head on the ice when he landed.
