The injuries affecting the Boston Bruins isn’t only limited to their crease. Aside from being without their top two goaltenders they were also missing Frank Vatrano, Kevan Miller and David Backes.
Backes is the newest member of the Bruins’ injured list and his situation was clarified a bit by the team on Wednesday morning.
According to GM Don Sweeney, Backes had the olecranon bursa from an elbow removed on Monday and we’ll know more about his status sometime this coming weekend.
