(Video and Vine) Zedeno Chara Pops Cedric Paquette and J.T. Brown Attacks David Krejci

I am not sure what Tampa Bay Lightning forward  Cedric Paquette is attempting to accomplish. Seriously, Zedeno Chara is one of the toughest players in the NHL and talk about poking the bear. Then Paquette goes after Chara again at the end of the game.

Also, when did former UMD Bulldog J.T. Brown become a fourth line hack? s/t to Jack Edwards after Brown attacked Krejci for no apparent reason. Brown is very lucky that Milan Lucic was held up by one of his Lightning teammates.

Boston Bruins: Zdeno Chara Hurt After Checking John Tavares (video)

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara blasts New York Islanders forward John Tavares with a good, hard, clean check. Incidentally, Chara would go to the dressing room after the hit and wouldn't return to the Bruins bench.

UPDATE: Chara hurt and will not return.

Chad Johnson Tweet - Wants to suit up for Habs so he can Fight Chara.

Yeah, let's think about this for a minute. I don't think that the Ocho Cinco has any idea how tough Zdeno Chara really is. Chara was ranked number one of the 10 toughest players in the NHL by the Bleacher Report in 2013.

Note to the NHL Officials, Cross-Checking is a Penalty

#becauseitsthecup ... Even thought it's the playoffs, cross-checking your opponent in the head is still a penalty, right? It should be. This should be called, this is a dirty hit and should be a five-minute major in my opinion. Thoughts?

Let me clear, I am not a dove by any stretch of the imagination, and this is coming from a guy that has the nickname Goon, but this could be classified a deliberate attempt to injure your opponent. This is why the NHL players are suffering from concussions in high numbers.

(Video) Almost Fight - Brendan Smith versus Zdeno Chara.

To quote Doc Emerick, "There are many in the NHL watching this and if I were Smith, I would hope that the linesmen arrive." This would have been the mismatch of the century.

(Video) 2013 SCF Game three... Bickell and Chara scrum; Marchand vs Shaw game ending fight.

What a fitting ending to an awesome game between the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks. Things got nasty at the end, so things are going to heat up it would appear. With the win tonight, the Boston Bruins have now won 11 straight game threes.

The Boston Bruins have also killed off 26 straight power plays, that's why the Blackhawks are 0/11 on the power play. Incidentally, the Boston Bruins have not given up a power play goal since game five of the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs against the New York Rangers when Dan Girard scored a power play goal at the 10:39 mark of the first period. That goal gave the Rangers a brief 1-0 lead.

Also, Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara had seen enough and sent Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell a message. I honestly don't think that Bryan Bickell has any idea what he was getting into with Chara. Chara is one of the toughest players in the NHL. As far as the Brad Marchand and Andrew Shaw fight goes. Meh! Give me a heavy weight bout anytime.

2013 Stanley Cup Finals Game Three: Bergy Scores 2-0 Boston after two...

The box score will read, Zdeno Chara pass to Jaromir Jagr who fed Patrice Bergeron with a beautiful cross ice pass. Bergy waited until he saw an opening and then shot and then shot the puck past Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford.

Derek Stepan scores goal off of Zdeno Chara miscue

Boston Bruins all-world defenseman Zdeno Chara was lazy with the puck this time and it cost the Boston Bruins a goal. Rangers forward Derek Stephan was Johnny on the spot as he put the puck in the net before the Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask could get set on his post. Chara's untimely slipup/turnover caused the game to be tied again at 2-2.

Zdeno Chara gets hit in the face by Ryan Callahan, no call on the play

The Officiating has been poor in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this year, there is no doubt about it. This is an obvious high stick by Rangers forward Ryan Callahan on Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara that went uncalled, that should drawn a double minor penalty. Four officials on the ice and no one saw it. The Officials did manage to call a very weak penalty on Jaromir Jagr that was much less serious than this.

Zdeno Chara scores on his own goal against the Flyers

Not a very proud moment for the Boston Bruins as defenseman Zdeno Chara scores on his own net. It was also a bad display of goaltending by Bruins goaltender Anton Khudobin. The Flyers scored two goals in seven seconds during the second period to take a 3-1 lead into the third period.

So you're saying there is a chance - Chara on his injury.

English: BOSTON, Mass. (Nov. 4, 2007) - Boston...Image via WikipediaThe injury ninja has bitten Zdeno Chara and it's unknown how long he will be out of the line up. Sounds like he is day-to-day but out for tomorrow's game against the Kings in Los Angeles. Chara is an important cog in the Bruins line up and if he is gone for any amount of time it would be bad for the Boston Bruins.
WILMINGTON -- Although he sat out today's practice at Ristuccia Arena in preparation for Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Kings at TD Garden, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, speaking to media for the first time since he sustained a left lower-leg injury in Saturday night's win at Columbus, said he "was feeling better than I expected."

Asked about whether the plan was to take the next week off, Chara replied, "No, the plan is to take it a day at a time, really. You can't really put a time frame on it. You basically have to see how it feels and it feels better than expected.''

Chara, who suffered the injury during a power play in the second period of Saturday's 5-3 road victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena, said he wasn't certain how long he would be out of the lineup.
It also looks like Gregory Campbell is questionable as well as the Bruins Blog is reporting that he was hurt blocking a shot in the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Zdeno Chara vs Robyn Regehr

This is probably the under card for tonight's game between the Boston Bruins and the Buffalo Sabres. The Bruins captain Zdeno Chara fights Robyn Regehr after a scrum behind the Boston Bruins net. I am going to score the win in Chara's favor as well.

So does Chara have to worry?

So with the Bruins coming back to Montreal tonight to play the Habs, one has to wonder if the Montreal Police are going to arrest Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara and drag him out of the Forum in hand cuffs? I think it's moronic that this case is still open and has not been closed yet.
Staff report, AOL.COM --- Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara returns to Montreal on Saturday night, still facing legal uncertainty regarding his on-ice hit of Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty last March.

Quebec’s director of criminal prosecutions says that no decision has been made on whether or not to bring Chara up on criminal charges regarding the hit.

“For the case of Mr. Chara, there are no developments for now and the case is under review,” Crown prosecutor Jean-Pascal Boucher said.

Chara’s hit on Pacioretty ended the Montreal forward’s season last year, breaking a vertebra. Chara was not suspended by the league and following public outcry, an investigation was opened by the Quebec director of criminal prosecutions.

Montreal police complete their investigation on Chara...

This just in from James Murphy of ESPN Boston. My first question is; what the heck are they going investigate? Along those same lines, how many police detectives did the Montreal Police department use to investigate this hockey play/hit? The play in question was about 3-4 strides and about 3.5 seconds ending with Pacioretty getting hurt.

Let's not kid ourselves Max Pacioretty got hurt and that was unfortunate, no one wants to see anyone get hurt on the ice, On the flip side of that discussion, do we want metro police departments and law enforcement agencies investigating questionable hits or actions that take place on the ice or playing fields I am being serious; you don't see the Boston or Pittsburgh Police departments charging Penguins' hack Matt Cooke with a crime for attempting to take Marc Savard head off, which was a more egregious hit than the Chara hit on Pacioretty. There was no crime committed by Zdeno Chara. What nexts, is the Montreal Police Department going to send officers to the Boston Bruins locker room and take Chara away in hand cuffs, just like they did the Hanson Brothers in the movie Slap Shot... Let's wrap this up, and move on.
James Murphy, ESPN --- Montreal police have concluded their investigation into Bruins captain Zdeno Chara’s controversial hit on Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty on March 8 and forwarded their report to Crown prosecutors. It is now their decision whether to prosecute Chara.

Amid public outcry from Canadiens and NHL fans in Montreal after Chara was not suspended by the NHL for the hit that left Pacioretty with a cracked vertebrae and concussion, the police launched an investigation in March and just recently questioned Chara.

Montreal Police plan to meet with Chara for hit on Max Pachioretty

This is moronic, let it go already, there isn't any reason to charge Zdeno Chara criminally, what do they think they are going to do throw Chara in jail for his hit on Max Pacioretty? It's a hockey play not a criminal act. It's time for the city of Montreal and their fan base to move on.
MONTREAL -- Zdeno Chara hoisted the Stanley Cup as captain of the Boston Bruins two weeks ago. Now the big defenceman will have something else on his hands: a meeting with Montreal police.

Montreal cops have announced they intend to question Chara soon -- but they won't say when or where they'll do it.

A probe into Chara's hit last March that sidelined Montreal forward Max Pacioretty and sparked demands for a crackdown on hockey violence is nearing completion.

A police spokesman says Chara is the final person they need to speak with to complete their investigation; after that, the Crown will decide whether to press charges.

"The last person to meet is the person targeted by the investigation and that will be done in the coming weeks or months," Lafreniere said.

"In terms of whether or not it's going to happen in Boston or whether it will happen here (in Montreal), we don't discuss those details and we never publicize the fact that we're meeting a suspect."

Chara's profile and the hockey-mad culture of Montreal have made for an unusual case.

When Chara shoved his rival into a stanchion, breaking a vertebra and ending his season on March 8, he received a game misconduct.
