Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Could return later this week

There's a chance that Chara (lower body) could return to action at some point this week, the Boston Globe reports.

Chara -- who was not on the ice for the Bruins' morning skate in advance of Tuesday's game against the Flyers -- skated on his own prior to Sunday's game against the Lightning, a step in the right direction for the big blueliner. His next chance to suit up with his teammates will arrive Thursday against the Hurricanes.
