Marchand missing from Bruins practice

WILMINGTON, MA Brad Marchand had to leave Saturdays game against Toronto after crashing awkwardly into the end boards on a rush to the net, and he is nowhere to be found at the start of Mondays practice at Ristuccia Arena.

Claude Julien said that Marchand was taken out of Saturdays game for precautionary measures, and that he could have played in the third period if the Bruins were in a pinch.

Marchand and David Krejci are both missing along with Shawn Thornton (concussion), and Gregory Campbell has donned a yellow practice jersey while skating with Patrice Bergeron and Tyler Seguin. Jay Pandolfo is filling in for Krejci between Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton while continuing to skate without a guaranteed contract as a practice squad player for the Bruins.

Here are the lines and defenseman pairings at practice:

Lucic-Pandolfo-Horton
Campbell-Bergeron-Seguin
Bourque-Kelly-Peverley
Paille-Tardif-MacDermid

Chara-Boychuk
Seidenberg-Hamilton
Ference-McQuaid

Rask
Khudobin
