Chara (undisclosed) practiced Monday. The big blueliner was paired with Charlie McAvoy on Monday and is thus on track to be a go for next Monday's Stanley Cup Final opener. Chara sat out this past Thursday's series-clinching win over the Hurricanes, but his quick return to the ice hints that his absence in that game may have been precautionary.
Chara skated on his own but did not practice with the team Sunday, Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston reports. With Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals scheduled for May 27, there's little to suggest Chara won't be ready to lace his skates up once Boston's opponent has been confirmed. Even when he does return to the ice, the towering blueliner offers very little fantasy value and should only be relevant in deeper leagues.
Chara (undisclosed) is expected to be ready for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals, Joe McDonald of The Athletic reports. Chara was held out of Game 4 against the Hurricanes with an undisclosed injury, though the issue doesn't appear to be all that serious. He'll have at least a few days to rest as the Bruins await the winner of St. Louis vs. San Jose.
Chara (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Game 4 matchup with the Hurricanes. Chara's absence comes as a surprise so close to puck drop. No information has been released about the nature of the 42-year-old's injury, leading some to speculate that the team is simply giving Chara rest. Regardless, the Bruins list their captain as day-to-day and more information should surface over the next few days.
Chara slapped home the game-winning goal in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Maple Leafs in Game 4. Chara has a lot of experience scoring points against Toronto in the playoffs. Over the 18 postseason games he has played against the Maple Leafs as a member of the Bruins, Chara has scored 12 points -- his highest point-per-game rate against any team in the playoffs since he came to Boston.
