Brad Marchand says doctors stopped Zdeno Chara from returning to Game 4

Larry Brown Sports

The Boston Bruins were dealt a major blow in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final Monday night when Zdeno Chara left with an injury and was unable to return, and Brad Marchand says the captain would have come back if doctors allowed it.

Chara took a puck to the face after blocking a shot early in the second period of Boston’s 4-2 loss to the St. Louis Blues. He was bleeding from the mouth and skated off the ice into the dressing room. The 42-year-old later returned to the bench wearing a full fishbowl mask, but he never got back onto the ice.

According to Marchand, Chara wanted to get back into the game but had to follow doctor’s orders.
