Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after Saturday’s game in Toronto that forward Brad Marchand was kept out of the third period of the Bruins’ 1-0 win over the Maple Leafs as a precaution. Marchand crashed into the boards and appeared to injure his shoulder midway through the second period and did not skate another shift for the B’s.

Tweeted NESN’s Naoko Funayama following the game:

Per Julien: Cautionary move on Bruins part to take Marchand out of game. Marchand wanted to keep going but Bruins thinking more long-term.

The 24-year-old leads the Bruins with five goals this season. With Marchand out of the game, the Bruins played Gregory Campbell and Chris Bourque on Patrice Bergeron‘s line in his place.
