Zdeno Chara Sure to Be ‘Flying High’ After Gordie Howe Hat Trick Against Philadelphia


Welcome back, Captain.

Zdeno Chara had a Gordie Howe hat trick and Tim Thomas continued his dominance of the Flyers, picking up his 30th career shutout while the Bruins scored four in the first period en route to a 6-0 laugher over Philadelphia.

NESN Nation's Dan Duquette is glad to have Chara back and figures that one of these days, the rest of the league will figure out how good the Bruins really are.
