Analysis: Backes, the former St. Louis captain who signed with Boston as an unrestricted free agent in July, was expected to miss up to eight weeks following his surgery on Nov. 2 to relieve inflammation caused by diverticulitis. He returned to the Bruins on Nov. 29 and got his 500th career point Monday with an assist during a loss at Nashville.

Analysis: Backes suffers from diverticulitis, a digestive-system ailment. He missed the team's first five games of the season before being cleared to play on Oct. 19, but has not played since Oct. 30. Having the veteran back in the mix should be a boost for a club currently out of playoff position in the East.
