    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Helps out offensively in embarassing loss

    Chara notched a secondary assist on the power play in Tuesday's 9-2 loss to the Kings. Chara worked in tandem with Matt Beleskey and goal-scorer Brad Marchand for the game's first tally, only for the wheels to fall off on the B's in the form of seven unanswered goals and nine in all. Due to his team's failure to stop the bleeding from the merciless Kings, Chara ended up with a minus-1 rating for the second consecutive game. Still, the 6-foot-9 blueliner has compiled 28 points in 51 games this season, eight more than he had through 63 matches in 2014-15.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Earns two helpers Monday

    Chara earned a pair of assists and blocked five shots in a 3-2 win over the Flyers on Monday. Big Z grabbed the primary apples on Brad Marchand's power-play goal in the first and Brett Connolly's game-winner with less than two minutes in regulation. He's now got 20 assists to go with six goals on the year, so if he can continue his 45-point pace, he could end up having his most productive season since 2011-12 when he recorded 52 points.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Notches helper Saturday

    Chara notched an assist in Saturday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Senators. Chara, who logged 21:37 worth of ice time in the game, has recorded assists in back-to-back games, upping his overall point total to 21 in 38 contests to go along with 30 PIM and a plus-9 rating, which ties him with Brad Marchand for the team lead in that category.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Picks up helper Wednesday

    Chara notched an assist in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens. Chara is up to 16 points on the season, with two goals and three assists over the past five games. A tank of a blueliner at 6-foot-9, 250 pounds, Chara is also helping plenty of fantasy owners with a a plus-10 rating. However, the biggest downside with Chara is that he generally has trouble staying on the ice, as evidenced by participating in only 213 of 353 games since the start of the 2012-13 campaign.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Nets winner late in game

    Chara scored the game-winning goal Saturday in a 2-0 win over Toronto. It came at the 16:17 mark of the third period. The old man is starting to put up some points -- Chara has four (two goals, two assists) in his five games. His game is clearly in decline, but Chara is still helping his team win. And honestly, his 11 points in 17 games are pure gravy.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Back in action

    In his regular season debut, Chara (upper body) recorded three shots in 21:27 of ice time in Monday's 6-3 loss to the Lightning. Per CSN New England, Chara, who was minus-2 in the game, "didn't appear to show any discomfort" while unloading any of his three shots Monday, and while the big blueliner saw just 40 seconds worth of power play time in his return, we'd expect him to see more man-advantage work moving forward. In any case, while Chara's return didn't generate an instant turnaround for the 0-3 B's, his size, experience and leadership remain assets to the team's blue line corps, a unit that that has had its share of issues out of the gate.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Set to return Monday

    Chara (upper body) is slated to play Monday against the Lightning. Chara is thus slated to come off IR on Monday, with his return a welcome one, as the Bruins are 0-2 out of the gate, having been outscored by opponents by a 10-4 mark in that span. Chara, who recorded 20 points and 42 PIM in 63 games last season, is a candidate for an uptick in production in 2015-16, assuming his health, given his projected role with the Bruins, which should see him log heavy minutes, both in even strength and man-advantage situations.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Iffy for Monday

    Chara (upper body) is "questionable" to play Monday against the Lightning, per coach Claude Julien. Chara, who sat out Saturday's contest against the Canadiens, appears to be progressing toward a return to action, though it still remains unclear if he will be activated from the 0-2 B's IR list in advance of Monday's game.

    Bruins' Zdeno Chara: Very doubtful for Saturday

    Chara is reportedly "very doubtful" for Saturday's tilt against the Canadiens, Steve Conroy of the Boston Herald reports. Chara was on the ice for the Bruins' morning skate Saturday, but skated as part of the team's fourth pairing, indicating he's not expected to suit up for Saturday's game against Montreal. His status will be confirmed prior to puck drop, but it looks as though Chara will be held out for at least one more contest with the upper-body injury that's been bothering him since Sept. 24.

    Bruins D Zdeno Chara considerd iffy for Saturday

    Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara (upper body injury) looked "free and easy while shooting the puck" during Friday's practice, CSN New England reports. That said, there's still no word on whether Chara will be available for Saturday night's game against the Canadiens. As the contest approaches, the B's captain remains day-to-day and if he is unable to go Saturday, his next chance to play would arrive Monday afternoon against the Lightning.
