Chara Spoke Prior to Ruling
WILMINGTON, Mass. — Prior to NHL Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy's ruling that Zdeno Chara would recieve no supplementary discipline for his hit on Montreal’s Max Pacioretty in the second period of yesterday’s 4-1 Bruins loss to the Canadiens, the Bruins captain spoke briefly with reporters after the Black & Gold’s practice at Ristuccia Memorial Arena.

Asked about the play, Chara said, “It’s just one of those things…like glass extensions, doors, even hockey nets are part of the game and obviously players run into them.

“It’s just very, very unfortunate that a player got hurt.”

Chara also talked about his own feelings about the injury to Pacioretty.

“It’s been hard obviously,” said Chara, who said he planned to contact the Canadiens forward. “I feel bad about what happened.

“I was trying to make a strong hockey play and play hard and it’s very unfortunate, like i said, that a player got hurt and had to leave the game.

“Obviously, it is in my mind.”

Asked if he would be surprised to be suspended, Chara simply said, “We’ll see.”
