That victory came at a cost, though, with Zdeno Chara suffering a lower-body injury. He appears to have escaped serious injury, but will be sidelined at least briefly. With Daniel Paille (concussion) and Gregory Campbell (foot) also banged up, the Bruins are dealing with some injuries for the first time in a while.
How will the Bruins fare without their captain and defensive leader? Who will have to step up if Chara and the others remain sidelined? Did those back-to-back losses last week raise any concerns for the club?
