Chara (broken jaw) will be a game-time decision for Game 5.
Chara missed Wednesday’s practice but was back on the ice for today’s optional gameday skate. Chara was wearing a regular jersey, which is a good sign for his potential availability for Game 5. Matt Grzelcyk (concussion) is also a game-time decision and would likely replace Chara on the top-pair if Chara can’t play.

Chara questionable for Game 5 after taking puck to the face in Game 4.
Chara left Game 4 after being hit in the face by a puck and did not return. Chara returned to the bench for the third period but never took a shift. "Obviously his mouth has some blood and I don't know what's going on in there, but he can barely talk and he's out there supporting us," Brandon Carlo told reporters postgame. Luckily for the Bruins captain, the series will have an extra day off before Game 5 on Thursday.
Chara (undisclosed) will return to the Bruins lineup for Game 1.
Chara missed Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals but the will play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals vs. the Blues. Chara, who plays a shutdown role for the Bruins, has been on the ice for 12 5v5 goals for and just six against throughout the postseason while playing 22:32 TOI/gm.

Chara (knee) will return to the Bruins lineup on Thursday.
Chara has been sidelined with a knee injury since November 14th but will be back in the Bruins lineup following the Christmas break. Chara has three goals and one assist in 18 games this season.
Chara (knee) returned to practice on Wednesday.
Chara has a left MCL injury and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
As feared, Chara will miss an extended period of time with a knee injury he sustained on Wednesday. This leaves the Bruins extremely shorthanded on the blue line in the immediate future and the loss of Chara for at least one month is a big loss. Expect a new update in mid-December.

Chara (lower-body) returned to Boston to be re-evaluated.
Chara looked to be in a lot of pain after twisting his knee in Colorado on Wednesday. Returning to Boston in the middle of the road-trip suggests that he will be out for an extended period of time. At the very least, he is out for the rest of the road-trip (three games) as Boston doesn’t return home until next Friday vs. the Penguins.

Chara left Tuesday’s game with a suspected upper-body injury and did not return.
Chara took a tumble into the corner boards in the first period of Tuesday’s game and never returned. The Bruins were already without Charlie McAvoy and Torey Krug also left the game, so they were without their top-3 defenseman and were still able to make a furious third period comeback. Expect an update on Chara’s status leading up to Thursday’s game in Florida.
