  • Bruins' David Backes: Scores second-period tally

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/17/17) Backes scored a goal on his only shot on net and recorded a minor penalty and four hits over 15:16 of ice time during Monday's Game 3 loss to Ottawa.

    The playoff veteran also picked up an assist in Game 2, so he's provided valuable secondary scoring for Boston. Backes is locked into a top-six role and is receiving power-play time with the No. 2 unit, but he shouldn't be confused with a go-to scorer at this stage of his career, especially after he posted his worst offensive season since the 2007-08 campaign.

    Bruins' David Backes: Finds back of net again Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Backes opened the scoring in Monday's 4-2 loss against the Maple Leafs.

    Backes has struggled to get situated in Beantown. While 16 goals isn't a terrible total, he is still on track to post the worst shooting percentage of his NHL career. He is starting to show some signs of life lately, scoring three goals with an assist over his past four games. Backes remains a solid fantasy play as long as he is slotted on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.

    Bruins' David Backes: On ice for pregame warmups

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/17) Backes (illness) is on the ice for pregame warmups and appears set to play Monday against the Maple Leafs.

    The veteran was held out of Monday's morning skate with the ailment but appears good to go for the evening's contest against division rival Toronto. He took line rushes in his usual spot on the top line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

    Bruins' David Backes: Game-time decision Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/17) Coach Bruce Cassidy relayed that Backes is "a little under the weather" and is thus a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Maple Leafs, CSN's Joe Haggerty reports.

    That said, Cassidy expects the veteran power forward to play Monday night and it's important to note that Backes' absence from the team's morning skate is evidently not a residual effect from the knee/leg issue that forced him out of this past Wednesday's game against the Flames for a spell.

    Bruins' David Backes: Not spotted at morning skate

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/17) Backes (undisclosed) was not spotted at Monday's morning skate, CSN's Joe Haggerty reports.

    Backes, who was shaken up in Wednesday's win over the Flames after going knee-first into the boards, was able to suit up Thursday against the Oilers, while logging 15:00 worth of ice time. Based on the B's lines at their morning skate, however, Jimmy Hayes is a candidate to fill at at right wing for Backes on Patrice Bergeron's line Monday night against the Maple Leafs.
