  • Bruins' David Backes: Dishes two helpers in win over Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/13/18) Backes collected two assists -- one on the power play -- during Tuesday's 5-2 win over Calgary.

    While this was the veteran's first multi-point showing of 2018, Backes now sports a three-game point streak with a goal and four assists. He's having a bit of a throwback campaign with 10 tallies and 15 helpers through 38 games, and his 106 shots, 27 PIM, 93 PIM and plus-4 rating are solid peripheral statistics. Still, Backes is more of a supporting piece than a go-to fantasy asset.

    Bruins' David Backes: Says he's fine after leaving Tuesday's game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) Backes indicated that he's fine after being evaluated for a head injury in the third period of Tuesday's loss to the Ducks, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports.

    Backes skated on line with Peter Cehlarik and Riley Nash at practice Wednesday, a trio that should remain intact Thursday against the Blues, with Anders Bjork dealing with an upper-body injury. Backes has not recorded a point over his last three games, but overall he's logged eight goals and 19 points in 31 contests this season, while providing the Bruins with valuable grit and leadership.

    Bruins' David Backes: Takes the ice Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/18) Backes, who left Tuesday's game against the Ducks with an unspecified issue, was on the ice for Wednesday's practice.

    Meanwhile, teammates Noel Acciari and Anders Bjork were not out there Wednesday and with the team having only recalled one forward (Peter Cehlarik) after both Backes and Bjork were banged up Tuesday, it appears as though Backes has a solid shot to play Thursday night against the Blues.

    Bruins' David Backes: Departs with injury

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/30/18) Backes (undisclosed) left Tuesday's game against the Ducks and didn't return.

    Backes left after taking a high hit from Nick Ritchie, but the Bruins had no updates after the game. The veteran winger has one goal and four points in 10 games since the new year, but he fired 28 shots on goal in that span and posted a plus-3 rating. With Anders Bjork (upper body) leaving Tuesday's game as well, the Bruins are seriously skimp at forward, so expect more recalls before Thursday's game against the Blues.

    Bruins' David Backes: Producing more often

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/18) Backes finished Saturday's 4-3 win over the Canadiens with five hits.

    While he failed to register a point Saturday, Backes delivered his highest hit total (five) since Dec. 14. Backes has heated up nicely lately, as evidenced by his 10 points in the last eight games. That said, the American veteran is a long way off the pace of his usual 200-plus hits and 20-plus goals, but there's room for him in most every format while he's hitting the scoresheet with regularity.
