WILMINGTON — Brad Marchand  was once again missing from the Bruins’ practice at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday. Following the skate, coach Claude Julien  said the forward is “questionable” for Thursday night’s tilt against the Thrashers at TD Garden.
Marchand has been out since leaving Saturday’s game against the Capitals late in the second period. The team has not disclosed what the injury is, but Julien has said that it stemmed from a hit he took in that game. Daniel Paille  has skated with the energy line in his absence.
In 31 games this season, Marchand has 12 points (4 G, 8 A) and a plus-5 rating. Three of his four goals have come on the penalty kill.
