The Boston Bruins took a 1-0 lead in the first period of Thursday night’s game against the Phoenix Coyotes when Zdeno Chara scored his 16th goal of the season.
The Bruins’ captain capitalized on a turnover by Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle and fired a wrist shot past goaltender Mike Smith to open the scoring. Boston center Chris Kelly provided a great screen in front of Smith.
Chara needs three more goals to tie his career high of 19, which he set in 2008-09.
