Julien: Chara is fine



BOSTON — Bruins captain Zdeno Chara left the bench and returned to the locker room twice during the second period of Thursday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

He missed the final two minutes of the period and was not on the bench for the start of the third. Chara eventually returned minutes into the period and played the rest of the game. When asked what the issue was, following Boston’s 4-3 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs, Bruins coach Claude Julien said Chara was fine.

“There’s nothing to report. Nothing to be concerned about as far as his situation,” Julien said.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. Radek Martinek and P.A. Parenteau both had a goal and assist during the Islanders’ four-goal second period, and New York put the area-rival Rangers back into postseason peril with a 6-2 victory Thursday night.

After Blake Comeau got the Islanders even 1-1 at 3 minutes 24 seconds, Martinek put them in front 33 seconds later.

Things settled down for a bit, but the Islanders struck for two more goals 1:16 apart – the first by Jesse Joensuu at 13:28 and the second by Parenteau to turn it into a rout. Matt Moulson scored his 31st goal of the season against backup Chad Johnson with 11:22 left, and Trevor Gillies made it 6-1 at 14:00. Read the rest of this entry

Bruin Playoff Probabilities: Rangers Likely & Canes not Dead, in Light of Habs Performance

Analysis by BruinsUnite

It’s far from a given that the Bruins will meet the Canadiens in Round 1. The best thing Montreal had going for it before the first week of March was Carey Price. Since his encounter with Boston, the 2.75 million dollar goalie has had to retreat to the bench twice in his last 3 games. He’s won 3 of his last 10 games and has let in 27 goals in that time, earning a 10-game save percentage of .887.

On the powerplay, Montreal was 0 for 14 before their last game against Carolina, in which they suffered a 6-2 defeat. In their most recent win against Atlanta, they ended a 3-game scoring drought that began with their 2-0 loss against Buffalo and escalated in a 7-0 loss in Boston. Their latest win featured an empty net goal, a “Bob Gainey goal” and a goal resulting from a silly error on the part of Ondrej Pavelec, Atlanta’s goaltender, who decided to leave his crease at a crucial time of attack.
