98.5 mentioned that Chara might be out tonight with a possible groin strain. First I've heard of it.
Odd since he finished the game the other night
Guys on radio says he has a sore groin and Bs are hoping they win and he gets a week off before SCF
Lavar Ball, is that you?
The other side says...I want him healthy, just case.
Exactly. Have to get him ready to play if he's needed. If there are no injuries to the defense you keep him out. If clifton is healthy he plays, Miller has been out to long at this point.
How long a rest do the Blues/Sharks get if they go 7?
I see your logic but I sure would like to have Miller for the rough stuff right off the bat. We know the Sharks or Blues are going to try to intimidate us physically especially in the first game.
Didn't someone mention that he may make it back if we get to the Final? Or was that just a pipe dream I've chosen to believe as reality? LOL
Zdeno Chara sat out Game 4 for Bruins
RALEIGH, N.C. — The Bruins opened the series without defenseman Charlie McAvoy. They clinched it without his top-pair partner.
Zdeno Chara, who participated in Thursday’s morning skate, did not dress for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Carolina Hurricanes. The team said he was day to day with an undisclosed injury.
“This time off will help him,” coach Bruce Cassidy said after the Bruins completed the sweep. “I believe he’ll be ready to go in Game 1, whenever that is. We don’t think it’s serious, but I’ve said that before about some of our guys and found out later.”
Any news on wags?
Clifton isn’t physical?
I’d consider him tough but not like Miller
Frankly, the Bruins aren't missing a beat with Clifton in the lineup instead of a Miller.
Read what I responded to. Only referring to his toughness - guy is an ass kicker
Since we have 11 days off Chara should feel a lot better...
What about Miller? Its definitely nice having Clifton, love the kid...Tough choice but I'd imagine if Miller is ready to go he'll play.
Even if miller is ready I think Clifton needs to play his way out of the lineup. He’s been huge and deserves it.
Miller shouldn't go in unless there's an injury. Clifton has earned his spot to play in the finals.
Nothing on Wagner hmmm
This would seem to suggest it's not broken. If he had a broken arm, they would know by now, wouldn't they? And if it was indeed broken, they would know for sure that he won't be playing - none of this waffling and uncertainty.
I took it to mean that he 100% broke it. 4-6 week injury, 4 weeks would be 11 June. Game 7 scheduled for 12 June so probably 1% chance he plays but who knows.
Hard to tell what the question was from the press conference, but Sweeney's response seemed to be about being ready for the start of the series.
And this is the way it was reported in the Globe (emphasis mine):
Seems to me if Wagner had a broken arm, he wouldn't be merely "unlikely" to play in game 1, he'd be ruled out definitely. But, perhaps we'll know more in time.
They have been this way about Kevan Miller for the entire playoffs so I wouldn't get hopes up.
