Boston Bruins defenseman Matt Grzelcyk skates past the bench after scoring a goal during the second period in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final of the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Carolina Hurricanes at TD Garden.

The Red Sox moved up the start time of their Wednesday night game to 4:05 p.m. ET to ensure that the fans in attendance would have a chance to get home for the 8:00 p.m. ET puck drop in the Bruins game.

Grzelcyk has not played since suffering a concussion in Game 2 of this series May 29, but has been practicing with the team for the last week.

Cassidy was asked if there would be any concerns for Grzelcyk after a two-week layoff. Should he return, Connor Clifton would come out of the lineup.

"I feel really good right now, and obviously they wouldn't clear me if they didn't think I was 100 percent", said Grzelcyk.

"He's been participating, albeit non-contact, so there's a little bit of a different animal there, but at this time of the year, you're not into a lot of contact at practice anyway".

If Alex Cora's prediction comes to fruition, the Boston Bruins will be skating hockey's most prestigious hardware around TD Garden late Wednesday night.
