Marchand, Paille, Thornton questionable for weekend
By James Murphy
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Just as the Bruins' matinee game against Tampa Bay on Saturday at TD Garden is becoming questionable due to the impending snowstorm, Bruins winger Brad Marchand (undisclosed injury) is listed as questionable for Saturday as well as Sunday at Buffalo.
After not playing in his team's 2-1 win at Montreal on Wednesday night, Marchand was not on the ice for practice Thursday. But coach Claude Julien didn't rule him out for the weekend.
"He's definitely not a write-off for Saturday. A lot can happen in two days, and we'll see how all that works out," Julien said.
Daniel Paille (upper body) and Shawn Thornton (concussion) both skated and are cleared for contact but also are question marks for the weekend.
