BOSTON – Bruins defensemen Zdeno Chara and Matt Grzelcyk are being called game-time decisions to play against the St. Louis Blues in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Boston coach Bruce Cassidy would not confirm Chara and Grzelcyk will take warmups ahead of Thursday night’s game. Each player was on the ice for the morning skate. Chara sported a full face shield, and Grzelcyk was in a regular visor.

Chara took a puck to the face in Game 4 on Monday and did not return to the ice. Grzelcyk is eight days removed from being concussed on a hit from Oskar Sundqvist that led to the Blues forward being suspended for Game 3. Team doctors must clear him to play.

Cassidy says the team doctor also must give Chara approval to play.
