Matt Grzelcyk expected to return for Bruins in Game 7
The Boston Bruins have one game remaining in their season, and defenseman Matt Grzelcyk has been cleared to take part in it.
Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy told reporters on Wednesday that doctors have cleared Grzelcyk to return for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final after a concussion kept him out the previous four games. Cassidy called Grzelcyk a game-time decision, but he expects him to play.

That is big news for Boston, as they have been banged up in the series — particularly on defense. Zdeno Chara is playing with a broken jaw, and Grzelcyk has been out since Game 2 after he was sent to the hospital with an illegal check from Oskar Sundqvist. He should help solidify things for the Bruins in their own zone.
