ST. LOUIS (AP) Captain David Backes and rookie Robby Fabbri are in the St. Louis Blues lineup for Game 5 of the Western Conference final against the San Jose Sharks on Monday night.

Backes and Fabbri were injured in Game 4. Both were cleared to play after the pre-game skate.

Backes missed the final two periods with an upper-body injury and Fabbri had just two shifts in the third period of a 6-3 victory that tied the series at 2-2.

Fabbri leads rookies with 14 points in the playoffs and Backes has seven goals and 13 points, equaling his career totals prior to this postseason.
