Former Blue Jamie Rivers said the Blues should slam into Chara every chance they get if he plays.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is planning on playing for the Cup tonight despite his broken jaw. If this happens, Rivers said the Blues will have to stay the course and work him really hard.

“You don’t want to take it easy on him,” he said. So far in this serious neither team has won two in a row, so the psychological battle of wanting to win the Cup and two games back-to-back can weigh heavily. It can also be intensely motivating.

“For me, the first period is always the indicator,” he said on what will be the most impactful part of the game.
