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.
