Zdeno Chara, Shawn Thornton Deliver Some of Biggest Hits During Bruins’ First Week of Season


The Bruins' season hasn't started the way the defending Stanley Cup champions had expected. The B's enter Saturday's game in Chicago owners of just a 1-3 record, as they have come out with uninspired efforts far too often.

Perhaps the Bruins would be best-suited to up their level of physical play to try and provide a spark going forward. The B's will enter Saturday's game with no fighting majors this season, a far cry from last year in which they racked up 71 during the regular season. It hasn't been for a total lack of trying, but Boston could stand to get a little more physical.

While the gloves haven't dropped just yet, there have been a few instances of the Bruins — and their opponents — taking the body. See the best of the week above in this week's Big Hits.
