Boston Bruins: Even without Zdeno Chara the defense shone through

Not everything has been accomplished by the Boston Bruins in a clear fashion. Before Game 4, they reported that the team’s captain and 42 year-old talisman, Zdeno Chara was injured and listed as day-to-day. The Chara-less Bruins defense still got the job done though!

Often criticized for the lack of speed and already being too old to play, Zdeno Chara played probably his best game in Game 3 win against the Hurricanes in the playoffs. His play was stellar, seemingly nothing could get through the Boston Bruins captain. It was like 2011 all over again.
