Breaking: Marchand out with injury

Second incident in a week. Could be bad.

Breaking: Marchand out with injury

The Boston Bruins evaded a scare earlier this week when Brad Marchand missed a team practice after seemingly injuring his knee.

He ended up okay, and was dressed for the team's next game against the Washington Capitals on Saturday night. He took a low hit from John Carlson during that game, and looks to be dealing with the after-effects.

Here was Marchand's reaction following the hit.

And here's the news this morning.

Marchand leads the team in scoring with 14 points in 12 games - he's established himself as an elite point producer in the NHL, and his loss is most unwelcome at a time when the Bruins are dealing with multiple injuries to key players, including David Krejci.

Here are the lines ahead of game night without Marchand.
