Zdeno Chara bloodied after taking puck to face

Zdeno Chara

Zdeno Chara left the ice during Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday after being hit by a puck.

The Boston Bruins captain deflected a puck while blocking a Brayden Schenn shot early in the second period. The puck sneaked up and appeared to catch Chara around the lower part of his face.

Chara was bleeding from around the lower right part of his mouth and had a towel up against it to absorb some of the blood.

Chara went into the dressing room after that and missed the rest of the period.

The Bruins captain, who is one of the few remaining players in the league to not wear a visor, may come back with more protection after getting stitches.

The 42-year-old defenseman assisted on the Bruins’ first goal of the game.

Boston leads the series against St. Louis 2-1.
