It took roughly 18 stitches to close a wound that was gushing blood as Backes quickly exited the ice in the first period, and now it looks like it's going to force him to miss a handful of games here late in the season. "David Backes returned late [Saturday] night with the team.

Backes escapes skate blade situation with deep cut that 'wasn't too dangerous'

The 33-year-old limped his way to the Bruins team bus out of Amalie Arena after Boston's 3-0 shutout win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, and needed approximately 18 stitches to close up the gash on his right thigh. "I'll play a second period one of these days," said a smiling Backes, who was forced out of Saturday night's loss with the skate blade cut in the last minute of the first period and exited the Florida loss as well after catching a match penalty in the first period as well. Luckily for him, there was no structural damage to Backes' right leg after Yanni Gourde caught him in the thigh area as both players were down on the ice around the Tampa net.

B's make a big statement to Tampa, rest of the NHL with gutsy win

It's probably something along the lines of "Oh crap" after the Bruins completely shut them down while missing their top defensemen pairing, their best all-around player and top line center, their most impactful rookie forward and also losing their best power forward, who was filling in as top line center, in the first period. It was impressive enough that the Black and Gold won at all against the NHL's best team while missing so many of their top shelf players, but to do it while also totally shutting down Tampa's offense was something worth remarking about.

Atlantic supremacy on line as Bruins visit Lightning

As much as anything that can be considered a playoff preview, the Tampa Bay Lightning play host to the Boston Bruins on Saturday night, the first of three meetings in the final 12 games of the regular season. Tampa Bay (48-18-4) continues to lead the Atlantic Division, but it is only four points up on the Bruins (44-17-8), who also have a game in hand as they make a final push for the top seed in the division. "This is the perfect time for Boston to come in," Lightning associate head coach Rick Bowness said.

Bruins recall Blidh, Postma from AHL

The Bruins were banged up physically by the end of their epic comeback over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night, and they will continue to be beset by injuries for the foreseeable future. The Bruins called up scrappy bottom-6 forward Anton Blidh and depth D-man Paul Postma from Providence on an emergency basis on Thursday morning, and it's expected both will be there to replace injured players in Boston's lineup. Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Jake DeBrusk all exited in the third period of the 6-4 comeback win over the Carolina Hurricanes, and it appeared postgame as if all three had undergone X-Rays while walking around the bowels of PNC arena.

The Boston Bruins trailed 4-1 with 10 minutes to go and were down to four healthy defensemen. Spurred on by Brad Marchand's words and David Pastrnak's play, the Bruins pulled off a stirring comeback. Pastrnak scored three of Boston's five goals in the final 10 minutes for his first career hat trick, and the Bruins stunned the Carolina Hurricanes by rallying for a 6-4 victory Tuesday night.

Bruins on third-period comeback: 'We just started to take over'

Once the momentum started there was no way of stopping it for the Boston Bruins. In a season where the Bruins have routinely showed a "will to win" and have consistently dominated the third period, they did both while scoring five unanswered goals in the final 10 minutes to secure a comeback 6-4 win over the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena. To call it a wild comeback or an exhilarating momentum shift would be selling things short of what actually happened in the latter half of the third period.

Bruins Surge Late vs. Canes

The Hurricanes slim playoff chances were dealt a major blow last night.  They had a golden opportunity to earn a much needed two points after Brock McGinn gave them a 4-1 lead over Boston 51 seconds into the third period.  However, Boston started an improbable comeback midway through the final frame to deny the Hurricanes even a consolation point. With that, Carolina has 71 points in 70 games as they look up at New Jersey, which holds the second Wild Card spot with 78 points in 69 contests.  It’s hard to see how they close that gap, and indeed Sports Club Stats has reduced the Hurricanes’ chances of making the playoffs to a mere 2.1%. Carolina’s loss was Boston’s gain though.  Combined with the Lightning dropping a contest to Ottawa on Tuesday, Boston is now just four points behind the Lightning despite having played in two fewer games.  In other words, there’s still a real chance that the Bruins will wrestle the Atlantic Division title from the Lightning.

Chara 'not a big fan' of pre-playoff rest

Zdeno Chara will turn 41 years old this coming weekend and is still the No. 1 defenseman for the Boston Bruins. Last week Chara topped 25 minutes of ice time in a win over the Red Wings that really wasn't his best, and he was a shade under 24 minutes in wins over the Flyers and Canadiens. The good news is that his ice time dropped in the last couple of games, including under 19 minutes in the loss to the Blackhawks on Sunday when he took a high-sticking call in the final minutes that directly led to Boston's loss.

Kane scored a tie-breaking power-play goal with 3:16 left in the third period and had an assist, and the Blackhawks beat Boston 3-1 on Sunday afternoon. Kane scored on a screened shot from just inside the left point to put Chicago ahead 2-1 with Boston's Zdeno Chara off for high-sticking Brandon Saad, getting a double-minor for drawing blood.

Bruins crushing teams without two of their best players

The Boston Bruins pushed their current winning streak to six games on Saturday afternoon with a 7-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks, keeping pace with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the race for the Presidents’ Trophy and continuing to show why they should be considered one of the leading favorites to win the Stanley Cup as we head into the stretch run. There are not many teams that could lose two players like that and not only go on a six-game winning streak, but do it in the manner in which the Bruins have done it. It’s not just that the Bruins are winning without two of their top players — they are still dominating.
