Boston Bruins: Looks like we’re stuck with David Backes

Most teams in the salary cap era end up with a contract or two (more in some cases) that they’d love to rid themselves of. The Boston Bruins are no different; that contract being the one belonging to David Backes.

Bruins opt in favor of speed rather than strength in decisive game seven

Heavy hitters appear to be out of the lineup in game seven David Backes is a true professional. It must be agonizing to be left out of the most important game in hockey, a seventh game to determine who has earned the right to hoist Lord Stanley’s Cup. The battle being waged between his current team and the one he formerly captained only adds to the distress of not being able to have an outcome in tonight’s contest. The veteran has played 70 regular season and 15 playoff contests, yet will be on the ninth floor tonight. The second line failed to be productive with Backes on the right...

Game 4 lines: Dunn deal

St. Louis is making some tweaks. While the Bruins have a defenseman on the shelf, the Blues are getting one back. So looks like Sundqvist in for Fabbri, Dunn in for Bortuzzo. #stlblues— Jeremy Rutherford (@jprutherford) June 3, 2019 Per those that follow the team, Vince Dunn's return is a boost for the Blues. Robert Bortuzzo hasn't been great, so this is probably an improvement. For the Bruins, they're going with the status quo: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Backes Marcus Johansson - Charlie Coyle - Danton Heinen Joakim...
