Last Time Out – Game 4

Ryan O’Reilly scored a pair of goals, including the go-ahead one midway through the third period, as the Blues knotted the series at 2 with a 4-2 win in Game 4. O’Reilly scored less than a minute into the game to give St. Louis an early lead, but the Bruins knotted things at two goals apiece heading into the third period.

The Blues were the better team down the stretch to send this back to Boston tied at 2. Vladimir Tarasenko scored his 11th goal of the playoffs for the Blues. St. Louis goalie Jordan Binnington was pulled in Game 3 after Boston dominated on offense, but he bounced back in this one by holding Boston to only a pair of goals.

Stanley Cup Finals Game 5 Injury Report

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara took a puck to the mouth, which kept him out of the game the rest of the way. Chara remained on the bench but his status for Game 5 is up in the air. He reportedly has a broken jaw, but there are reports that he could still try to play through the injury.

It would be a big loss for Boston if he cannot go as Chara has a goal and five assists in the playoffs and is one of the staples on the team. The Bruins will be short-handed on defense if he cannot play.
