Garden Report On Ice: Backes Making Noise On The Ice Too; Marchand Deals With Bullseye On His Back

Here's my latest Garden Report On Ice where I take a look at the recent play of Boston Bruins forwards David Backes and Brad Marchand.


In the latest Garden Report On Ice, I looked at how forward – who is already a vocal force in the dressing room – is making noise on the ice with his recent play. The 33-year old veteran who signed a five-year $30 million deal on July 1, 2016, may never be able to put up the stats that such a deal can cause the media and fans to expect, but if he can chip in 20 goals combined with his invaluable leadership, the Bruins won’t feel short-changed.

I also take a look at how Brad Marchand, once the hunter, has become the hunted and how the pesky, star forward is dealing with the constant physical abuse he faces every game.
