Bruins' David Backes: On ice for pregame warmups

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.
