It’s unclear at this time the reason for Chara’s absence, although Boston’s captain did take part in the team’s morning skate Thursday morning.
Zdeno Chara not on ice for pre-game warmups for Bruins.
Looks like John Moore will be filling in.
Chara was among the Bruins who skated this morning (it was not a full skate)
