BOSTON (CBS) — The Bruins are already without Patrice Bergeron due to a concussion, and it looks like they may be down another key forward due to a head injury.

Brad Marchand left Wednesday night’s game in New Jersey late in the second period after Anton Volchenkov elbowed him in the back of the head. Marchand immediately fell to the ice, clearly in pain, before two teammates helped him off the ice.

Volchenkov was issued a five-minute major penalty for elbowing and a game misconduct and will more than likely face suspension from Brendan Shanahan and the NHL Department of Player Safety.

The Bruins offered no details, reporting only in the third period that Marchand would not return.

CHECK: Bruins-Devils Box Score

Marchand entered Wednesday night’s game leading the team in goals (16) and points (32).

The Bruins beat the Devils 5-4.
