Video: David Backes scores goal from his back

St. Louis Blues forward David Backes has picked up his play for the St. Louis Blues over the past several games and has a point in each of the Blues' last three wins, which happened to all be very important victories as the season nears the home stretch with just 13 games left on the schedule.

While Backes has posted a point in each of the last three games, none of the points were as impressive as the goal he scored in Friday night's win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. Backes found the back of net for the second consecutive game but this time, scored from his backside.

Backes took a cross-ice pass from Alex Steen that was also tipped by Jaden Schwartz and shot a backhanded shot while on his back past the Columbus goalie to break a 1-1 tie.
