Bruins captain Brad Marchand out for Game 5 vs. Panthers

Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand participated in the team’s morning skate but will not play in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference second-round series Tuesday night versus the Florida Panthers in Sunrise, Fla., coach Jim Montgomery announced.

Marchand, a forward, also sat out Boston’s 3-2 loss in Game 4 after receiving an upper-body injury following a hard check from Florida’s Sam Bennett in the first period of the Panthers’ 6-2 victory in Game 3 on Friday. The Bruins trail 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

The 36-year-old Marchand has team-leading totals in assists (seven) and points (10) in 10 playoff games for Boston.

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.
