  • Bruins' David Backes: Back to game after scary scene

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/18) Backes (face) returned for the second period of Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.

    Backes defied odds by returning, as Arizona's Oliver Ekman-Larsson's skate scraped his face in the first period and caused him to immediately head off the ice. Backes was sewed up and will tough it out.

    Bruins' David Backes: Takes skate to face

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/11/18) Backes left Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes after taking Oliver Ekman-Larsson's skate to his face, Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports.

    It was a scary scene as Ekman-Larsson was falling to the ice and his skate blade incidentally made contact with Backes' face. Backes immediately left the ice and sprinted down the tunnel. The veteran forward is a tough player, but it would be surprising if he returns to this game.

    Bruins' David Backes: Gets scoring on track

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/9/18) Backes scored on the power play during a 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday.

    After going scoreless in the first 12 games of the season, Backes has started to carve out his role in the offense. The 34-year-old has five points in his last seven games. He has not been as offensively potent as the Bruins would like, but at least he's gotten on the scoresheet recently.

    Bruins' David Backes: Scores second of season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/18) Backes scored the opening goal during an eventual 4-2 loss to the Red Wings on Saturday.

    The goal is only Backes' second of the season despite that he's played in 21 games. He has never managed to top 40 points in a season with Boston, and he won't come anywhere close this season either.

    Bruins' David Backes: Shell of former self

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/18) Backes scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Montreal.

    It took 18 games, but Backes finally got his first goal of the season. And his second assist. Long gone are his dominant, 50/100 power-forward years. Backes is a filler on the Bruins. He shouldn't be that on your roster.
