Sean Kuraly Has Made Convincing Case To Get Opportunity On Second Line

9 days ago   |   By NESN

After Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Minnesota Wild, Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy was asked if he saw David Backes being a long-term solution as the team's second-line right wing alongside David Krejci and Jake DeBrusk.
“I don't know if I ever have long-term solutions,” Cassidy said with a smile.
