Zdeno Chara appears to have jaw injury, status unclear for Game 5

Breakfast Pod: Bruins fall to Blues in Game 4

Had some stitches, probably some dental work in the near future.

UPDATE (Monday, June 3 at 10:22 p.m. ET): Chara has returned to start the third period, and he has some more protection.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara had to leave Game 4 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final after he took a puck to the face.

Chara, 42, recorded an assist over eight minutes of action in Game 4 and has one goal and three assists over 19 games this postseason.

Chara sat on the bench and was not talking, leading NBC Sports Network's analysts to speculate after the game that he may have had a broken jaw. "He's better than where he was, so there's a chance for him [to play in this series]", Cassidy said Monday after Boston's morning skate.

"We clearly know he got a puck in the face", Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said following the loss.

So with Chara playing the role of muted spectator, the Bruins were yet again forced to play with just five defensemen.

The Bruins, who in the first period moved rookie Connor Clifton to Chara's right side and put his usual partner, Charlie McAvoy, with John Moore, went with a Moore-McAvoy pair on the next shift.

"I don't know his status for Game 5", Cassidy admitted.

A baby born at Mercy St. Louis was in the Stanley Cup less than a day after the Blues big.

"I can't say whether he'll play in Game 5". Game 5 will be played at TD Garden in Boston on Thursday night. The series is tied at two games apiece.
