Bruins’ Grzelcyk cleared from concussion protocol ahead of Game 7

Watch as Matt Grzelcyk is injured after a hard forecheck by Oskar Sundqvist in Game 2 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.

Boston Bruins defenceman Matt Grzelcyk has been cleared from concussion protocol ahead of Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues.

Grzelcyk will likely replace Connor Clifton in the Bruins lineup.

Grzelcyk was injured late in the first period of Game 2 when he was on the receiving end of a high hit from Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist. He had been listed as day-to-day while in concussion protocol.

In 19 games this post-season, the 25-year-old has three goals and seven points.

Sundqvist was given a one-game suspension for the hit from the league’s department of player safety.
