Bruins-Canadiens Add Latest Chapter to Heated Rivalry With Zdeno Chara’s Hit on Max Pacioretty


You probably only remember one hit from the Bruins-Canadiens matchup on Tuesday night, but it was quite the physical battle at the Bell Centre.

The B's and Habs came out in full force in the rematch of their thrilling Feb. 9 battle at the TD Garden. There weren't as many punches thrown during Tuesday's game, but one crushing hit sent a wave of silence through the Montreal crowd.

Zdeno Chara said he had had no intention of checking Max Pacioretty into the divider between the two benches, but the crushing hit sent the Canadiens' winger into the partition hard, and he left the ice on a stretcher. Chara was ejected with a game misconduct.
