Bruins' Brad Marchand game-time decision for Game 6 vs. Panthers

Bruins captain Brad Marchand participated in Boston’s morning skate and is a game-time decision for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference second-round series Friday night against the visiting Florida Panthers, coach Jim Montgomery announced.

Marchand sat out Boston’s 3-2 loss in Game 4 and the Bruins’ 2-1 win in Game 5. The forward has been idle since receiving an upper-body injury after a hard check from Florida’s Sam Bennett in the first period of the Panthers’ 6-2 victory in Game 3.

The Bruins trail 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

“He’s going through his final steps. He’ll be a game-time decision,” Montgomery said.

Marchand, 36, has three goals and a team-leading seven assists for 10 points in 10 games during the postseason.

Marchand had 67 points (29 goals, 38 assists) in 82 games this season. He has 929 points (401 goals, 528 assists) in 1,029 career games since being selected by the Bruins in the third round of the 2006 NHL Draft.
