Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is a game-time decision for the B's as they face the Ottawa Senators in the second night of a back-to-back stretch, according to reports.
Boston defeated the Los Angeles Kings, 3-0, in their first game without Big Z this season, courtesy of a 41-save night from goaltender Tuukka Rask and two goals from Brad Marchand. Chara traveled with the team to Wednesday's morning skate, but said it's unlikely he will play.
"Probably most likely not," Chara said when asked if he would play. "But again, it's a game-time decision. It was the first time on the ice in three-four days. I didn't expect to be feeling great, but I didn't feel bad. That's a good thing."
Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said there was a 50-50 chance Chara suits up Wednesday.
"I would expect to see him in on Saturday [against Philadelphia]," Chiarelli told 98.5 The Sports Hub's Toucher & Rich. "I think he's been riding the bike and looking decent and better. I don't know about tonight though."
