Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour paid respect to Zdeno Chara in the handshake line

Zdeno Chara did not play in the Bruins’ Game 4 win over the Hurricanes Thursday, but the team’s longtime captain skated out in uniform after the game to celebrate and lead the Bruins in the ceremonial, end-of-series handshake line.

NBC Sports’ microphones captured Chara’s conversation with Hurricanes head coach Rod Brind’Amour, who wanted to know first and foremost if Chara was in good health.

“You gonna be alright?” Brind’Amour can be heard asking Chara.

“Yeah, I’ll be alright,” Chara, who the Bruins expect to return for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, said.
