David Backes Addresses Nick Ritchie’s Blindside Hit During Bruins’ Loss To Ducks

David Backes exited the Boston Bruins’ 3-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday early, and on Wednesday he commented on the hit that forced his departure from the game.

Ducks forward Nick Ritchie came in with a questionable hit well after Backes got rid of the puck, sending the 33-year-old to the ice. Backes acknowledge he didn’t care for the hit, though he did fully participate in Wednesday’s practice.
