The Boston Bruins suffered a 6-2 defeat in the last game against the Panthers, but they lost much more than just the game.

Indeed, captain Brad Marchand got injured in the game, and his condition is worrying many. An even more discouraging announcement came in the last few hours.

"Brad Marchand is not at Bruins practice this morning.

JVR on the Bruins' first power-play unit instead of Brad Marchand this morning."

The Bruins' captain couldn't even lace up his skates, nothing. He seems really worse off, and knowing the fiery forward, it must be very serious for him to be absent.

"Injured during Game 3, Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand was noticeably absent from his team's practice on Saturday.

Hit hard by Sam Bennett in the early moments of the game, Marchand left after the second period when his team was trailing 3-0. He did not play the third period, and the Bruins ultimately lost 6-2." - TVA Sports

After winning the first game, the Bruins have just lost the last two chapters convincingly. Without their captain, it could be very difficult, especially since he's been their best player since the start of the playoffs.

Clearly, this could spell the end for the Bruins in these 2024 NHL playoffs.
