Tough news for a Boston Bruins team dealing with a tough start: Brad Marchand has a concussion.
That’s the word from head coach Claude Julien, so it’s a sure thing.
Now, there was no word about how severe the issue may be, but it’s officially a concussion. It’s not the ideal scenario even if it’s a “minor concussion,” which feels like a contradictory idea in itself.
Here’s the Dale Weise hit from last night’s eventual 4-2 win by the Montreal Canadiens:

It’s not official like Marchand’s concussion, but there may be a bit of good news. Maybe.
Suppose this means Chara's ready https://t.co/gWIV2N5FIs

Claude Julien said Zdeno Chara is "questionable" for tomorrow afternoon vs. Lightning, but he looked very close to playing today at practice

That would be a much-needed boost.
