Insider leaks hint that Brad Marchand's injury is worse than expected

Brad Marchand has missed the last two games of the series against the Panthers, and now it's been revealed that his injury may be worse than initially feared.

After taking a collision with Florida's Sam Bennett in game three, Bruins Captain Brad Marchand hasn't been seen since, as the team fought back in game five to get the series back to Boston. Now, one insider has revealed a story from the Bruins locker room that could suggest Marchand may be out a little longer than expected, with a concussion the reason behind it.

The Bruins kept Brad Marchand's sweater hanging in his stall during the game tonight.

Coyle: "His leadership, even when he's not dressed he's still in here, he's still leading. And he does what he can to help the team in whatever way possible."

If Marchand was expected back soon, the team likely wouldn't go through the process of hanging his sweater in the locker room to inspire his team, and Charlie Coyle likely wouldn't have been given an A' in his absence. Some took to the post to comment that the Bruins are acting like Marchand is dead with the hanging of his jersey in his stall, while others point out the obvious, that the concussion is likely to be much worse than we know right now.

Getting the feeling this concussion is way worse than is being reported

The typical concussion protocol in the NHL calls for a player to miss a few weeks, and with the series now into elimination games, it's unlikely that Marchand will return, unless an absolute medical miracle occurs before Friday's game six.
