Marchand Update

Toronto, ON - Brad Marchand left Saturday night’s game in Toronto after colliding with the boards in the second period, returned to take a couple of shifts and then did not return for the rest of the game.

After the 6:00 mark of the second, following a clean, hard faceoff win by Patrice Bergeron in the B's zone, the puck went right onto the stick of Tyler Seguin, who pushed the puck up ice to Marchand racing down the left wing. No. 63 then cut towards the net, collided with Leafs' defenseman Mike Komisarek, got caught on James Reimer' right skate and was catapulted into the boards. Marchand was slow to get up, and cradled himself to the bench - he ended up taking a couple of shifts and then went to the dressing room.

Following the B’s 1-0 win over the Leafs, Coach Julien gave an update.

“It was a cautionary move on our part and instead of making the situation worse, we said let’s pull him back,” said Coach Julien. “We don’t want to lose players for long-term injuries by pushing through a minor one and we hope that after he gets re-evaluated and things settle down, that he’ll be better quickly.”

“Yeah, he was,” Julien told media, when asked if Marchand had been cleared to play following the collision in the second period. “I’m actually the one that looked at the clock, there wasn’t much time left and I said, let’s just wait until the period ends and let’s just evaluate you there because he wanted to keep going and it wasn’t to the point where he couldn’t play in a pinch.”

“But like I said, we don’t want to lose players long-term and so sometimes we’re being over cautious.”

Coach Julien's postgame update on Marchand can also be found in the Bruins Beat video below. The B’s are off Sunday, so look for an update regarding Marchand on Monday, when the Bruins return to practice at Ristuccia in Wilmington at 10:30 a.m.
