NHL Series: Brad Marchand’s state of health reassessed daily

The Boston Bruins practiced without a major absentee on Saturday morning, as Brad Marchand was not on the ice with his teammates.

James van Riemsdyk also took his place on the first wave of the power play.

His health will be re-evaluated daily, according to the team’s head coach, Jim Montgomery.

Marchand made contact with Florida Panthers forward Sam Bennett early Friday evening during Game 3. He remained in the action afterward, but did not complete the game.

After watching replays of the sequence, Montgomery suggested the day after the game that the Panthers player intentionally hit his captain in the head.

“Bennett has a history. It’s easy to see what happened. People can say it wasn’t intentional. We have our point of view,” he limited himself to the title.

An opinion that his opposite number, Paul Maurice, does not share at all. According to the Panthers head coach, “it was just a collision,” he initially observed. “In the best of all worlds, both teams have injury-free formations. No one wants to see him hurt. »

Marchand, who celebrates his 36th birthday on Saturday, has three goals and 10 points in as many games during the current playoffs.

Florida leads the series 2 to 1.

The next match will be played on Sunday, still at TD Garden in Boston.
