The Bruins are likely getting defenseman Matt Grzelcyk back in time for Game 7. He was medically cleared to play after suffering a concussion in Game 2.
“One thing about Matt, if he does go in [after] missing some games, is he’s been skating with us,” Cassidy said. “It’s not like he just jumped on the ice yesterday. He’s been participating, albeit non-contact, so it’s a little bit of a different animal there.
“But at this time of year, you’re not getting a lot of contact in practice anyway. So he’s just going to have to understand — because he did obviously live the first game and a half or whatever it is in St. Louis — that it is going to be physical. He’s been there, he’s been watching. He knows he has to get back in a hurry, make the decisions with it and take a hit to make a play. That’s what’s required. It usually is against this team.”
