Boston Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara will play, and start, for the Boston Bruins in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the St. Louis Blues.

Matt Grzelcyk, however, is unavailable for the Bruins due to a concussion.

Chara suffered a broken jaw in the Bruins’ 4-2 loss in Game 4 on Monday. He took part in warm-ups before Thursday’s tilt and was subsequently medically cleared to play.
