Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand skated Monday morning and will travel with the team to Florida.

Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said the left winger is day to day, responding “yep” when asked if Marchand is feeling better.

Game 5 of the Eastern Conference second-round series is Tuesday night in Sunrise, Fla., and the Bruins trail 3-1.

Replays show Marchand was sucker-punched to the head by Panthers center Sam Bennett early in Game 3. However, Bennett wasn’t called for a penalty and later was cleared by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety.

Marchand, who turned 36 on Saturday, missed the third period of Game 3 and all of Game 4, both Bruins losses.

Marchand has two points in the series, both assists.
