Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara made history in Game 6 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final, and he'll break another record in Wednesday night's Game 7 against the St. Louis Blues.
Chara scored an empty-net goal late in the third period Sunday night to cap the Bruins' 5-1 win at the Enterprise Center. This tally made Chara the oldest defenseman to score a goal in Cup Final history at age 42.
The Bruins captain is poised to break another NHL record Wednesday with his 14th Game 7 appearance. He currently is tied for the most Game 7s played with Hockey Hall of Famers Scott Stevens and Patrick Roy. Chara hoisted the Stanley Cup for the B's in 2011 when they defeated the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. He has a 6-7 record in Game 7s.
The veteran defenseman has shown tremendous toughness and character in this series against the Blues. He reportedly broke his jaw in Game 4, but returned for Game 5 and Game 6 with added protection on his helmet.
