Zdeno Chara couldn’t get the heroes welcome he deserved in his return to TD Garden due to COVID-19, but his former team still found a way to make sure the fans got involved.
Chara signed with the Washington Capitals in the offseason, ending his 14-year run with the Boston Bruins. Fans aren’t allowed back at TD Garden for another few weeks, but that didn’t stop them from saluting their former captain.
The B’s released a tribute video to Chara in the first period that included career highlights, hits and goals, as well as fans thanking the 43-year-old for all he did since the 2006-07 season.
