David Backes is back.
The Boston Bruins forward has two goals through as many periods of hockey against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night, with both scores coming in the second frame to put the Bruins up 3-1.
Backes’ second goal was an absolute beauty, going far post on Yotes goalie Scott Wedgewood, while also avoiding the stick of a crashing defender.

The two tallies are the first goals of Backes’ season.
