David Backes is starting to find his form for the Boston Bruins.
The veteran winger began the season on the shelf as he was battling diverticulitis, which eventually required surgery to remove part of his colon.
But Backes has been playing well of late, as he continues to get his legs underneath him. He’s notched six points in his last three games, including two goals in Boston’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals on Thursday.
Backes, however, gave all the credit to his linemates, Riley Nash and Danton Heinen, for his recent success on the ice.
To hear from Backes, check out the video above from “Bruins Breakaway Live,” presented by Geico.
