Brad Marchand opens up for the first time after Sam Bennett's hit

Brad Marchand has missed the Boston Bruins past two games after a hit from Sam Bennett, and now he's address the situation.

The second round series between the Florida Panthers and the Boston Bruins has been a tight, physical battle all the way through, and no where is that more evident than with Brad Marchand. In game three, he collided with Sam Bennett, and since that point he's remained out of the lineup, with closer footage revealing that the Panthers forward may have got away with an illegal play.

Now, after missing games four and five, the Boston Bruins captain has finally addressed the situation with the media on Wednesday ahead of a must-win game five.

Brad Marchand on Sam Bennett's punch:

«I think he got away with a shot. But I'm not gonna complain. Shit happens. I've been on the other side of a lot of plays. That's part of the game, part of playoff hockey. Sucks to be on the other side of it, but that stuff happens."

It's unclear when or if Marchand can return to this series, as the NHL take concussions incredibly serious, but at least it appears he won't be holding a grudge against the veteran forward.
