  • Bruins' David Backes: Back at it Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/19) Backes (coach's decision) will reenter the lineup Thursday evening against the Blues.

    An underperforming Backes reportedly will spell Noel Acciari in the upcoming contest. Backes has produced only four goals and eight assists through 38 games this season, and he's on track to fall on the undesirable side of the plus-minus mark for the first time since 2009-10, when he was with the Blues. Various injuries and a three-game suspension have put a sizable dent in Backes' fantasy value after he vowed to have a comeback year.

    Bruins' David Backes: Slated to be a scratch

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/19) Backes will be a scratch Wednesday night against the Flyers.

    With four goals and 12 points in 38 games to date, Backes hasn't been producing on a level in line with his annual $6,000,000 salary cap hit. The 34-year-old does bring veteran leadership and a physical presence to the table, but his modest output on offense has the Bruins looking for a spark on their second line. With that in mind, Peter Cehlarik will man left wing on that trio with David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk on Wednesday.

    Bruins' David Backes: Picks up assist

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/11/19) Backes collected an assist during a 4-2 loss to the Capitals on Thursday.

    The assist came despite Backes seeing little ice time in the contest; he ended with only 12:41, though, to be fair, he did see four minutes on the power play. Backes now has nine points in his last 16 games as he attempts to solidify his spot on David Krejci's wing.

    Bruins' David Backes: Scores in return from suspension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/19) Backes collected the game-winning goal during a 2-1 win over the Sabres on Saturday.

    In his first game back from a three-game suspension, the big winger was able to break his nine-game scoring drought with a top-shelf shot past the goalie. In his last 17 games, Backes has put up 10 points and created valuable depth scoring that the Bruins had been lacking to start the season.

    Bruins' David Backes: Eligible Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/4/19) Backes has served his three-game ban and is available for Saturday's matchup with Buffalo.

    Prior to his suspension, Backes was stuck in a nine-game goal drought, though he did manage to register four assists during that stretch. Despite the slump, the winger continues to put pucks on the net, as he has 21 shots in those nine outings.
