9:30 a.m. ET: The Stanley Cup will be in the building on Monday night, and it will be the visitors who have a chance to hoist hockey’s most treasured prize. The Bruins and Blackhawks will play Game 6 Monday night in Boston where Chicago will look to win its second Cup in four years. The Hawks took care of business Saturday night when they beat the Bruins 3-1 in Game 5 giving them a 3-2 series lead. They’ll now get their first chance to close out the series with Game 6 at TD Garden. It’s not an unfamiliar position for the Bruins, though. The B’s were in the same position in 2011 against Vancouver. After losing Game 5 on the road, the B’s returned to Boston for Game 6 and the Bruins rolled to a 5-2 win that extended the series, a series which they ended up winning in seven. The Bruins may be up against it on Monday night, though. Patrice Bergeron left Game 5 and  had to go to the hospital with what was later categorized by coach Claude Julien as a “body injury.” Bergeron’s status for Game 6 is unclear. If the Bruins are without the center, they could be in for a load of trouble as he is arguably the club’s most important player. Chicago will have an injury issue of their own to deal with perhaps. Jonathan Toews didn’t technically leave Game 5, but he didn’t touch the ice in the third period. The Hawks sound confident he’ll play Monday night, but that would be a pretty big blow as he’s one of Chicago’s most important players as well. Puck drop for game 6 at TD Garden is set for just after 8 p.m.
