Marchand to sit again?
By Luke Lapinski
There's a decent chance the Boston Bruins could be without their top goal scorer when they visit Buffalo this evening. Brad Marchand missed the game against Montreal on Wednesday because of a shoulder issue and seems doubtful for tonight.
Claude Julien labeled Marchand questionable for the game, though Joe Haggerty of CSN New England notes that the 24-year old winger seemed like the odd man out during the Bruins' morning skate. And the team website also suggested that he may not be expected to suit up for this one. Boston returns home for a matchup with the New York Rangers on Tuesday, before heading out on a five-game road trip to essentially close out the month of February. They'd obviously like to get Marchand back as soon as possible -- not only for his offensive skills, but for his general ability to frustrate opponents.
