Brad Marchand out tonight versus the Florida Panthers

Published May 14, 2024 at 11:40

The Boston Bruins find themselves in a tough spot yet again, facing elimination from the playoffs, and to add salt to the wound, their captain Brad Marchand will be sitting out Game 5.

The Bruins star was on the ice for morning skate but it was decided after the pain would be too much to handle.

Marchand's been sidelined with an upper-body injury since Game 3, when he took a vicious hit from Panthers' forward Sam Bennett.

This Sam Bennett reverse hit is likely the play in which Brad Marchand sustained his injury 😩💥

Without Marchand in the lineup, the Bruins gave it their all in Game 4, but couldn't quite turn the tide, dropping their third game in a row and putting themselves on the brink of elimination at the hands of these cats for the second straight season. At least if they lose this time, it won't be as gut-wrenching as it'll be in five and them being as underdogs, than in game 7 overtime as heavy favorites after blowing a 3-1 series lead.
