Bruins practice updates: Backes to the future

We've got some more changes, folks.

The Bruins practiced in Columbus today, and unsurprisingly, there were some tweaks in the lines.

Per Marisa Ingemi of the Herald (who you should follow if you don't already):


That would leave us with:

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak

Jake DeBrusk - David Krejci - David Backes

Marcus Johansson - Charlie Coyle - Danton Heinen

Joakim Nordstrom - Noel Acciari - Sean Kuraly

Honestly, not terrible. With all three struggling, it makes some degree of sense to reunite that first line in hopes of a jolt.

I'm also not opposed to giving Backes a look, and Heinen's possession game could work well with Coyle and Johansson.

No changes were announced on the blue line.

Your thoughts? Reasonable moves, or desperate moves?
