David Backes and Patrice Bergeron both missed the morning skate, which is not ideal.
From Matt Kalman, your forward lines:
No Bergeron or Backes for AM skate -- 63-51-10, 39-52-72, 74-46-88, 59-20-55; 33-25, 86-73, 48-54— Matt Kalman (@MattKalman) October 5, 2017
Boy, that bottom six is something else, eh? Yeesh.
And on defense, where things are a bit more settled:

Here's to hoping Bergeron and Backes are able to go!
