Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara will not be disciplined for his hit on LW Max Pacioretty during Boston’s 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens Tuesday at the Garden. The 12-year veteran defenseman is relieved to be lifted from any kind of suspension, but his greatest concern remains with the health of his rival opponent. “I feel bad that he got hurt, as a hockey player we all feel bad when something like that happens,” said Chara. “Doesn’t matter if it’s the home team or the visiting team. I’m wishing him a fast recovery so that he can get back on the ice soon. That’s all we like to do, is play hockey.”
The Bruins are currently behind the Philadelphia Flyers and Washington Capitals in the Eastern Conference at 38-20-8 with 16 games left on their regular season schedule. They are next scheduled to host the Buffalo Sabres tonight before hitting the road to face off against the New York Islanders and Columbus Blue Jackets this weekend.
