Zdeno Chara, Johnny Boychuk Throw Weight Around Against Lightning

The Bruins’ offense did most of the damage in the 8-1 rout over the Lightning on Thursday night, but there were a few big hits that also got the Garden fans going.

Also encouraging was Marc Savard‘s quick recovery after getting hit in front of the net early in the game. Fresh off his six-month return from post-concussion syndrome, Savard didn’t miss a beat in his first game back with the B’s.

An elbow from Johnny Boychuk had quite the effect on a member of the Lightning, but it didn’t seem to distract him from the puck one bit.
