Update: Although Backes left Thursday's practice early with a groin strain, he is probable for Friday's game against Calgary, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford reports.
Recommendation: This shouldn't be a problem, but cautious fantasy owners may want to check back in Friday to make sure there haven't been any negative developments with Backes' groin. He has two goals and seven assists through 13 games.
