Zdeno Chara Helps Open Scoring For Bruins Thanks To Teammates’ Forecheck


After a scoreless first period, the Boston Bruins finally broke through with two goals in a dominant second frame.

The first of those goals came off the stick of Zdeno Chara, who fired a one-timer that deflected off Ryan Spooner and into the back of the net. The goal likely never would have happened without some help from his teammates on the forecheck, though.

Berkshire Bank Foundation

During the 2016-2017 regular season, Berkshire Bank Foundation will donate $100 for each Bruins assist to three local non-profit organizations. Click here to see official rules.

As of March 30, the Berkshire Bank Foundation has raised $11,500 for Cradles to Crayons, which provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive -- at home, at school and at play.

Earlier this season, the foundation raised $10,000 for Soldier On, a private nonprofit organization committed to ending veteran homelessness, and $12,100 for Birthday Wishes, a non-profit organization with a mission to provide birthday parties to children experiencing homelessness.
