After his incredible 4 goal game, David Backes played a round of Golf in Arizona to celebrate, where he amazed his line-mates Oshie and Steen with a hole-in-one on the 18th hole, a par 5.
Backes then flew back to St. Louis and got in a quick round of Bowling, where he participated in a Professional Bowling tournament by mistake and bowled a perfect 300, leaving with the trophy.
On his way home Backes rescued 27 stray dogs and one kitten when driving along the Mississippi. It is said the animals sensed the presence of the dog lover David Backes and leaped into the bed of his truck on their own.
Upon his arivial at home he was greeted with a Publishers Clearing House check, which he promptly donated to the Stray Rescue of St. Louis Foundation.
Backes then went down to the boats to try his luck and within 3 hours was seen walking out with the deed to the Casino in hand.
