BOSTON — Zdeno Chara reminded the hockey world of two things on Sunday night in Boston. He reminded everyone why he’s the Bruins captain, and he sent a startling reminder as to why you don’t want to ever fight the big fella.
Chara pummeled Montreal Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin in the second period of Sunday night’s game after Chara apparently thought Emelin cheap-shotted B’s forward Tyler Seguin. Chara went right after Emelin, decked him with a hit and then picked him up and started throwing haymakers.
Chara didn’t get away scot-free, though. He was given the five-minute fighting major as well as a two-minute instigator and a 10-minute misconduct.
