News: Chara recorded an assist in 24:13 worth of ice time in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.
Impact: Chara, who has two helpers in four games since returning from a knee injury, continues to shake off the rust; as long as he can avoid further injury setbacks, the big blueliner is destined to continue to log heavy minutes for the Bruins in all situations.
News: Krejci (groin) saw 18:22 worth of ice time in his return to action in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.
Impact: Krejci, who had last suited up Nov. 18, worked on a line with Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith on Wednesday. Assuming the playmaking center is able to avoid aggravating the injury that caused him to miss the B's previous 11 games, respectable production on offense should be on tap for Krejci, who led the team in scoring last season with 69 points in 80 games.
