Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Game-time decision

Chara (jaw) is a game-time call for Thursday's Game 5 clash with St. Louis.

Chara hit the ice for the game-day skate sporting a chin protector and regular sweater. The towering blueliner's inclusion in the lineup would be a huge win for Boston, as it looks to take a critical Game 5. If the veteran does suit up, he may play slightly less than his 21:56 postseason average, but should be a factor thanks to his shut-down ability. If Chara and Matt Grzelcyk (concussion) are both available, John Moore and Steve Kampfer will probably find themselves relegated to the press box.
