Marchand upended Borowiecki away from the puck during the first period in Boston's 7-3 home victory Tuesday night. The 5-foot-9 Bruins forward swooped down and took out the 6-foot-2 Borowiecki at his knees. Borowiecki wasn't injured on the play
Marchand was punished as a repeat offender. He has previously been suspended three times and fined another during his career, including three lower-body infractions. One of those suspensions came after a similar hip check on Sami Salo in 2012.
The suspension will cost Marchand $164,634. He has 15 goals and 11 assists in 34 games this season.
The Bruins will face the Montreal Canadiens in the Winter Classic on Friday at Gillette Stadium.
