Boston Bruins left winger Brad Marchand has avoided supplementary discipline for a hit on Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov.

Boston Bruins left winger Brad Marchand has avoided supplementary discipline for a hit on Florida Panthers defenseman Dmitry Kulikov.

Comcast SportNet New England’s Joe Haggerty reports that Marchand will not be suspended after being assessed a five-minute boarding major and game misconduct with 2:06 remaining in Boston’s 3-1 win on Friday.

Kulikov left the game and reportedly sustained a broken nose on the play. However, he is expected to play Saturday when the Panthers host the Washington Capitals. He has three assists in 10 games this season.

Marchand scored twice in the victory against Florida, giving him four goals and seven points in as many games this season.

The 5-foot-9, 181-pound winger has been suspended twice over his seven-year NHL career. He was banned five games for clipping Vancouver Canucks defenceman Sami Salo in 2011-12. He also sat our two games for slew-footing New York Rangers center Derick Brassard last season.
