ST. LOUIS, MO - JUNE 03: Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask (40) makes a skate save on a shot during the first period of Game 4 of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals hockey game between the St. Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues get back to action for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Thursday at 8 p.m. The start time for the Stanley Cup Final is usually closer to 8:20 so you have time to possibly cram in most of Celebrity Family Feud.

The Boston Bruins are back on home ice after falling 4-2 to the Blues on Monday night. The big question mark headed into Thursday’s game is the health of Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara. Sources confirmed after the game on Monday to Boston Hockey Now that Chara did indeed break his jaw. If Chara can’t go, it’s a big hit to Boston’s penalty kill and another physical body not available for Boston.

Let’s take a look at some betting odds we see for Game 5 of the Cup Final in the wake of Chara’s injury:

Matt Grzelcyk returned to practice on Wednesday which would give the Bruins a much-needed puck-moving boost from the defensive zone. If Grzelcyk did return, he would also give Boston further stability on the second power-play unit. Grzelcyk did the wear the red no-contact jersey during Wednesday’s practice but was able to participate for the duration of the practice.
