The Bruins announced today that David Backes would be doubtful for tomorrow’s game against Pittsburgh and the next night’s game against Montreal:

Backes left Saturday's game in visible distress shortly after the terrifying scene where Scott Sabourin collided head-to-head with him, was knocked unconscious, and was stretchered off. It’s very likely the B’s call up a player from Providence by lunch time tomorrow.

Until we know more, the best we can say is “Get well soon” to Backes, and hope he returns at 100%.
