Status report

  • Marchand will not play; the forward and Bruins captain exited Game 3, a 6-2 loss on Friday, before the third period after a hit from Panthers forward Sam Bennett in the first period. He did not practice Saturday and is day to day.
  • Heinen is an “option” to return Sunday, according to Boston coach Jim Montgomery. He’s missed the past five games with an undisclosed injury but was a full participant at practice Saturday.
  • Montgomery did not reveal who will start in goal.
