Ironically, his first game back is against Borowiecki and the Senators.
If you’re expecting Ottawa to run around the ice trying to get a piece of Marchand, guess again.
That won’t be happening according to their head coach Dave Cameron.
Marchand paid a steep price for his hit. Not only did he miss three games, but one of those games was the Winter Classic against Montreal on Jan. 1.
“It’s been tough,” said Marchand, per NESN. “I’ve done it before; I’ve missed games before, and it’s always hard any time you have to watch your team play, especially when we’ve been off for, I think, 11 days between three games. So, it’s been a tough week-and-a-half, but I’m really excited. Any time you sit out for a while and have to watch the team play, you always get hungry to get back out there, and I’m really excited about (Saturday).
The Bruins went 1-2-0 without Marchand this time around, and they’re 2-3-0 without him this season.
