Bruins’ David Backes Overpowers Panthers, Scores Game-Tying Goal

Goals don’t always have to be pretty. Just ask David Backes.

After the Florida Panthers grabbed an early lead just over a minute into their game against the Boston Bruins, David Backes evened the score later in the period with a hard-fought goal.

The Bruins did an excellent job of keeping possession in Florida’s zone, and Backes finished the job by outmuscling Panthers defenders and sliding the puck past goalie James Reimer.
