Marchand left Thursday's 4-3 Bruins win over the Washington Capitals in the second period with an upper-body injury after getting hit along the boards by Garnet Hathaway.
The Caps forward received a two-minute minor penalty for interference. Marchand has 20 goals and 43 points in 31 games this season.
Blidh also left the game after Tom Wilson knocked him out with an open-ice hit in the first period. Following the game, Cassidy said didn't mind Wilson's hit as much as Hathaway's.
“On the Blidh one, he came into the middle of the ice and saw him at the last minute. Wilson hits hard. We’ve seen that. Some clean, others not clean. I didn’t mind that hit,” Cassidy said. “That Marchand one I didn’t like at all. The official was right there in front of it and didn’t call it. The trail official called it. I’m not sure why the guy watching it didn’t.”
