Zdeno Chara has continued to play big minutes for the Boston Bruins this season.
Chara is 40 years old, but that hasn't stopped him from being a big-minute shutdown defenseman. The veteran has played 24 minutes or more in five of his last seven contests. "[Chara] thrives on it; he wants it. Sometimes you’ve got to grab him by the scruff – well I can’t – but [B’s assistant coach] Kevin [Dean] will try to get him off in [some of] those situations – not in a five-on-three – but he relishes that role," head coach Bruce Cassidy of Chara's ability to kill penalties. "If you look at our PK all year it has been in the top five, maybe slipped out to seven or eight. Zee is the biggest reason on it – and the goaltender has to make the saves. That’s not being disrespectful to [Patrice Bergeron], who does a great job, or [Riley] Nash, but Zee sees a lion’s share of it, and he sets the tone on it." Jan 20 - 10:22 AM
