The Boston Bruins are reeling through injuries, especially in the crease, but this update is from the forward lines, as David Backes is expected to sit out tonight with an undisclosed injury. He's being listed as day-to-day and it is really starting to feel like playoff hockey, as no one is saying anything about much of these injuries. Backes is leaving a pretty good-sized hole, as he has already posted 4 points in the first five games.
Brian's team is hanging in there early, but could use a hot streak from a few of his players. He'll start Tuesday night in 16th place, 18 points out of 1st place.
