Marchand has 'mild concussion'

The Bruins announced Thursday evening that left winger Brad Marchand suffered a "mild concussion" on the elbow hit to the head he took Wednesday night from Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov in Boston's 5-4 win.

The Bruins did not say how long Marchand will be out. The announcement from GM Peter Chiarelli said the team will "provide an update on his status when appropriate."

Marchand is leading the team in points with 33 and goals with 16.

Volchenkov was given a four-game suspension for the second-period play, which forced Marchand to leave the game.
