Zdeno Chara Gives Bruins Lead for Good, Win Over Islanders With Wicked Slapshot (Video)


For two periods on Friday night, the Bruins looked to be asleep at the wheel, stumbling to a 2-2 game against the Islanders.

Then, in the third period, the B’s woke up, scoring twice and securing another two points in what’s been a red-hot start to an abbreviated season. The man who gave Boston the lead for good was the captain, Zdeno Chara, who relied on his wicked-hard slapshot to put the puck over the shoulder of Isles goaltender Rick Dipietro. However, it was the Bruins’ puck-possession game that started the play, playing some hard-fought hockey and winning battles in the corner.
