Zdeno Chara Gives Encouraging Update After Bloody Shot Block In Game 1


BOSTON — Zdeno Chara certainly has taken some shots in these Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Bruins captain took a mighty blow off his leg in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Carolina Hurricanes, and the big man was drilled with another shot in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final.

This block appeared to be a bit more gruesome, with a point shot catching Chara on his wrist, which was exposed and cut open pretty badly.

But after the game, Chara gave an encouraging update.

“Yeah, I’m fine. I just got a cut. So, I just needed a couple of stitches,” Chara said.

Seeing Chara head down the tunnel in the waning minutes of Game 1 was the last thing Bruins fans wanted to see, but it’s pretty unsurprising to hear the captain assure us that everything is fine.
