Bruins Vs. Canadiens: Zdeno Chara Not Worried About Montreal Return

Zdeno Chara and the Boston Bruins will make their return to the Bell Centre in Montreal for the first time since Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Monday night as they face the rival Montreal Canadiens in their fourth preseason game at 7:30 p.m. EDT (Radio: WBZ-FM 98.5 The Sports Hub).

While the Bruins and Canadiens are top-tier rivals, the spotlight will be on one player in particular, Chara, as he returns to a hostile environment that is still angry over the hit that he delivered that ended the season of Max Pacioretty. Chara, however, is not worried about his reception of the environment, saying that he won't take a different approach.

"It really doesn't matter to me where I play. It's all the same. They're going to do what they're going to do," said Chara, when asked if he had any apprehension about playing a preseason game at the Bell Centre after last year's wild season series against the Canadiens. "I know that I did nothing wrong. I'll always play the same way and that's not going to change. I play hard and I play clean. I'll do that if I play there, or anywhere else." (via NECN)
