Bruins say Marchand has 'mild concussion'

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has a mild concussion, the team announced Thursday before playing the New York Islanders.

"Brad has been diagnosed with a mild concussion," general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement. "We will provide an update on his status when appropriate."

Marchand was elbowed in the head by New Jersey Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov on Wednesday night.

Boston forward Patrice Bergeron also has been out since suffering a concussion April 2. He was with the Bruins’ scratches during an optional morning skate at TD Garden.

The Bruins have Adam McQuaid back in the lineup for the first time since March 19, when he strained his shoulder.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
