Analysis: Backes, who signed a five-year free-agent deal with Boston prior to last season, missed the two days of practice leading up to Thursday night's opener because of illness. He was then a scratch for the game. The club issued a release after the first period saying Backes was being treated at Massachusetts General Hospital, under the care of team internist Dr. David Finn.
