Julien: No update on Marchand's condition
Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand needed to be helped off the ice after getting elbowed in the head.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien did not have an update on the status of injured forward Brad Marchand following his team's 5--4 win against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday at Prudential Center.

Marchand left the game and didn't return after getting elbowed in the head by Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov with 4:49 left in the second period. He needed help off the ice from Andrew Ference and Jaromir Jagr and headed straight for the dressing room.

Volchenkov was issued a five-minute major for elbowing and a game misconduct.

"After the second period our trainer said he wasn't going to be back," Julien said of Marchand. "Whether that's being cautious or not, I don't know. I'll let our doctors give me the verdict before I say anything, but I haven't talked to anybody about him since the game finished."

The Bruins are already playing without center Patrice Bergeron, who missed his fourth straight game Wednesday with a concussion. Bergeron has resumed working out on his own.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding it, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
