Zdeno Chara Is On The Ice At The TD Garden, With A Reportedly Broken Jaw

June 6, 2019

After taking a puck to the face, Zdeno Chara is back on the ice, and possibly playing in Game 5.

The Bruins' Captain was filmed skating on the ice during an optional skate with the rest of the team a few hours ago. This is the definition of a warrior who is there to lead the team. After the injury in Game 4, multiple reports have stated that he suffered a broken jaw, but there has been no confirmation of that.

According to ESPN, Coach Bruce Cassidy revealed that it will be a "game-time decision" if Chara is to play in Game 5. In the video from WEEI below, you can see the bubble cage he is wearing around his face for protection. In the press conference, he gave written answers to questions -- not something that happens every day. 

People everywhere are blown away by his determination to get back into the game!
