Peverley returns to Boston for injury evaluation; no hearing for Marchand

Bruins winger Rich Peverley, who was injured in a knee-on-knee hit with Montreal’s Hal Gill last night at the Bell Centre, returned to Boston this morning and will be evaluated by team doctors, according to coach Claude Julien.

Peverley is not expected to rejoin the club for tomorrow’s game in Winnipeg. Look for Josh Hennessy, who grew up in Rockland, Mass., to make his Bruins debut against the Jets.

Also, the NHL confirmed this morning that Brad Marchand, who received a two-minute clipping penalty at the end of the second period in Montreal, will not be subject to a hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan.
