SportsPulse: They can finally play Gloria at home. The St. Louis Blues tied the series at two and it looks like this thing could go seven.
BOSTON — Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy didn’t speculate whether injured captain Zdeno Chara is out for Thursday’s Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.
“Facial injury – no update on him,” Cassidy said. “I will give you an update on him tomorrow.”
The only hint Cassidy offered was that Chara didn’t skate, “so that makes it a little bit more difficult for him.”
“I’ve always said the guys who skating are little closer,” Cassidy said.
Chara, 42, suffered what appeared to be a significant injury early in the second period of Game 4 when he was struck in the face by a shot from Blues forward Brayden Schenn. The shot, from close range, struck Chara’s stick and deflected upward.
Some reports have said Chara suffered a broken jaw, but all Cassidy confirmed after the game was that Chara received stitches to close the cut and that he would need dental work.
