Looks like there will be a different guy on the first line. The Bruins' lineup will look a little different again tonight, with Paul Carey drawing in. Also, there will be someone else on the first line: Boston Bruins David Backes plays on the top line tonite with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand...”Just to stay out of their way and let them do their thing.” @wbznewsradio— Tom Cuddy (@TomCuddySports) March 14, 2019 He did get a few shifts there on Tuesday, but apparently will get an extended look tonight.

Bruins Taking Unnecessary Risk With Backes

When the Boston Bruins signed David Backes to a five-year contract during the summer of 2016, the expectations for him in Boston were very high. With a cap hit of $6 million per season, Backes was projected to play alongside David Krejci on the second line. Instead, Backes has played primarily in the bottom six […] The post Bruins Taking Unnecessary Risk With Backes appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Boston Bruins David Backes: Fighting For His Team

Boston Bruins David Backes: Fighting For His Team

Boston Bruins David Backes had participated in 52 games this season for the Bruins and had only 15 minutes of penalties. Then, in three of his last five games, he has had five-minute fighting infractions. What's gotten into him? Boston Bruins David Backes Fighting? Let's See What's Going on When David Backes first faced his former St. Louis Blues team after signing as a free agent with the Bruins, he dropped the gloves with former teammate Joel Edmundson back on Jan. 10, 2017. Backes fought in retaliation for a hit on Bruins' teammate David Krejci by Jori Lehtera and received an instigator...

Who’s in, or out, for this matchup? Figure for more of the same, or perhaps a substitute for Lee Stempniak, who got his first sniff of NHL action since last spring. Check out the Penguins’ potential lines below.

Recap: David Krejci’s late tip lifts the Bruins over the Senators

Recap: David Krejci’s late tip lifts the Bruins over the Senators

It wasn’t pretty, but it counts! There wasn’t a ton happening in the first period, BUT: David Backes chose “Baby Shark” for his “Bruins Beats” selection, which rules. After previous PP attempts looked awkward and out of sync, the B’s get it going. A beautiful cross-ice feed from Torey Krug is buried by Brad Marchand. 1-0 Bruins. Shortly after the Bruins take the lead, Ottawa ties it up. Miscommunication between Patrice Bergeron and Zdeno Chara leads to the puck sliding to Jean-Gabriel Pageau in the slot. He took advantage of that good fortune and beat Tuukka Rask with a dart...
Bruins lines vs. Ottawa: More like Stempni-BACK

Bruins lines vs. Ottawa: More like Stempni-BACK

The veteran winger makes his season debut. He was recalled this morning, and he was recalled for a reason: Lee Stempniak will make his season debut tonight. The Bruins confirmed this morning that Stempniak will, in fact, play, and will play on David Krejci’s right. Another minor change: in practice, at least, Joakim Nordstrom replaced Peter Ceharlik on Krejci’s left. That may be one that Bruce Cassidy tweaks as needed. Here we go: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Danton Heinen Joakim Nordstrom- David Krejci - Lee Stempniak Peter Cehlarik - Charlie Coyle - David Backes Sean Kuraly -...
