Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand's fate for game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Florida Panthers has been confirmed.

Marchand will miss Game 4 against the Florida Panthers due to an upper-body injury sustained from a collision with Sam Bennett during Game 3.

Jim Montgomery provides a lineup update for tonight's game: "Marchand is out tonight...he's doing well it's day to day...Heinen is a option for tonight."





The incident occurred in the first period of Game 3 when Bennett collided with Marchand after passing the puck. Although Marchand remained on the bench for the remainder of the second period, he did not return for the third due to the injury.


Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery took responsibility for the team's lack of response to the incident, attributing it to their focus on trying to get back into the game.


Bennett, who has received two suspensions in his career, has a history of controversial hits. Despite this, Panthers head coach Paul Maurice dismissed any notion of a deliberate punch, describing the collision as accidental.


In response to Marchand's absence, Bruins players emphasized the need for a collective effort and physicality to challenge the Panthers' top players in Game 4.


The Bruins aim to avoid falling behind 3-1 in the series as they face the Panthers in Game 4.
