The big story, of course, is Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues tonight. All eyes are on Zdeno Chara and his mangled jaw. If Chara can suit up I posit it would be one of the gutsiest moves in Bruins playoff history. If he can’t go there’s still a chance Matt Grzelyck suits up for the Bruins after missing the last two games while undergoing concussion protocol.
Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald writes that Boston could use any good injury news they can get and that, “for a team desperate for any good news on the health front, Grzelcyk’s return would be a strong booster shot.” Read more on the Boston Herald.
As someone who has never suffered a broken jaw, I can’t imagine the pain. Patrice Bergeron praised Chara for his “impressive” pain tolerance and leadership. (NESN)
