Bruins captain's Game 5 status unclear after puck to the mouth

Bruins captain's Game 5 status unclear after puck to the mouth

But in Game 4, the Blues forced the Bruins to take worse quality shots from the perimeter, which resulted in a series-tying win. "We're a big, heavy team and when we get pucks low we grind it down low and get second and third opportunities".

Twenty-six seconds into the Blues power play, however, the Bruins inexplicably got numbers on a rush and Carlo scored shorthanded to tie it again.

Cassidy said Chara "had some stitches, probably [will have] some dental work in the near future". This player, of course, is Zdeno Chara for the Boston Bruins. This is the second time a Chara injury in the final has drawn blood.


Cassidy mentioned that if Chara can't go in Game 5 then Steve Kampfer, Urho Vaakanainen, Jeremy Lauzon and Jakob Zboril would be the names in the mix to replace the 6-foot-9 D-man with a concussed Grzelcyk still not ready for a return to the Bruins lineup.

"How we got here, I don't think really we need to focus on that".

Louis Blues forward Brayden Schenn attempted a shot from the faceoff circle, the puck deflected off Chara's stick, caught him up high, and left him bloodied. But Boston head coach Bruce Cassidy offered a promising update on the 25-year-old blue liner, who may be able retake the ice for the Bruins before the series is over. "Anything that comes out of his mouth. everybody is listening to him".


Chara finished with just 8:23 of ice time in his early exit, but did return to the bench in the third period while not being allowed to enter back into the game.

"That's the type of guy he is, come out and be there to support", Bruins center Charlie Coyle said. I understand why the Bruins are favored, but the Blues have surprised us all playoffs in road games, and they've actually been the more physical team this series, leading in hits in all four games and putting together stretches of hockey where everybody is flying around and denying Boston everything.
