Bruins’ David Backes Says Complacency Is the Enemy

Published

on

If the Boston Bruins want to take advantage of the 2-0 series lead they currently hold over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Bruins’ David Backes is pointing to complacency moving forward.

“You want to keep your foot on the gas because this team has had success against us in the past and they’ve done a good job playing us, especially in their building,” Backes said, according to NHL.com’s Amalie Benjamin.

“Complacency is probably the enemy at the moment, but we need to go start from the puck drop. It’s a 0-0 game, and establish ourselves again.”

The Bruins’ top line has been the catalyst for their strong play as David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron, and Brad Marchand have combined for 20 points thus far in the series.

“The rest of us, we need to make sure that we’re not just saying, ‘Well they’re going to have another awesome night tonight,'” Backes added. “If we’re going to just sit back and wait for them to do it, if there’s a night where they just don’t have it, or they don’t get a bounce or two, we need secondary scoring to step up and make sure we have that.”
