Bruins’ Chara out for Game 2

 

To win the Stanley Cup a team needs to overcome a certain amount of adversity and that’s exactly what’s facing the Boston Bruins. Heading into Game 2 on Saturday night, already down, the Bruins won’t have their highest scoring blue liner, 6-9 veteran workhorse Zdeno Chara. After losing that first game 2-0 to the Montreal Canadiens, Chara, who played 25 minutes in that first game, was a stellar +33 this season, but was hospitalized on Friday night with, what the team is calling, dehydration. Needless to say he didn’t take part in Saturday’s morning practice. Prior to practice, his teammates didn’t learn about their number one defenceman’s condition until they arrived at the TD Garden for morning skate; which Chara obviously missed. “I know him real well and he’s a battler,” said Bruins rugged forward Milan Lucic. “I’m sure he’ll do whatever he can to get himself ready to play tonight.” “He’s a big man who plays big minutes and he does a great job playing the role he does.” Unfortauntely for Bruins fans and management Chara, who took part in the pre-game warmup, was a late scratch. Taking the place of Chara for Saturday night’s Game 2 will be veteran, Shane Hnidy.
