Zdeno Chara

Zdeno Chara was left bloodied after blocking a puck late in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday.

The Boston Bruins were leading 4-2 in the final minute of the game after scoring on an empty net with under two minutes to go. The Blues were attempting a comeback and tried to score on a slap shot by Vladimir Tarasenko. Chara stood in the way and blocked the shot, but it hit his wrist first and caused him to bleed:

The Bruins captain exited the ice after being bloodied. He had an assist, two blocks and two hits in just over 19 minutes on the ice in Boston’s 4-2 win.

Chara did not play in Game 4 of the conference final against the Hurricanes due to a lower body injury. He is a +11 this postseason.
