Chara Likely Unavailable This Week

Fluto reports that Zdeno Chara, who sustained a knee injury in Saturday night's game against Columbus, will likely miss Boston's games against Los Angeles, Ottawa and Philadelphia this week. Chara may return against Montreal on December 19, or they may elect to let him heal over the Christmas break and return against Phoenix on December 28. Chara was observed walking without discomfort after Saturday's game.

So, it appears this is a relatively minor injury, and Bruins fans can (for now) breathe a sigh of relief.

Steven Kampfer will take Chara's spot in the lineup.
