Chara suffered broken jaw in Game 4

Zdeno Chara's status ahead of Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final is unclear after taking an errant puck to the face during the Boston Bruins' Game 4 loss Monday, head coach Bruce Cassidy said following the contest. He's averaging almost 22 minutes a night for the Bruins during this playoff run and has a 59 percent goal share when on the ice at five-on-five. He returned to the bench in the third period but did not re-enter the game. "So I can't say whether he'll play in Game 5 or not". "I'm excited to just go home and relax, do what I need to do to get my body right".

Game 5 is set for 8 p.m. ET Thursday in Boston.

It's been a tour de force of resiliency, which seems fitting considering these two teams were among the most resilient in the league this season.

But don't rule them out just yet.

With human pincushion Kevan Miller already out of the lineup, that's basically half the Bruins' top-six that might be unavailable for the rest of the Stanley Cup final. He missed 16 minutes and 57 seconds of action in the second period, and sat on the bench the entire third period.

The St. Louis Blues are coming off an impressive game four victory and now go on the road where they've played their best hockey all postseason and hav won nine of their last 12 in the underdog role.

A team doctor made the decision that Chara, .

On Tuesday, The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford reported that Chara suffered a broken jaw on the play. Grzelcyk is still in the NHL's concussion protocol and has to be cleared before returning.

The Blues claimed the relatively penalty-free heavy game they played to knot the series took its toll on a thin Bruins back end. There's been a huge unpredictability factor.

Another rebound off Rask paved the way for O'Reilly's go-ahead goal.

Resilience has been the story, the Bruins have a chance to make sure it stays the story with a rebound performance on home ice on Thursday. But right now a lot of signs point to St. Louis being the favorable team.
