Zdeno Chara shows off big man dangles with sweet goal against Canadiens
Zdeno Chara may not be the elite two-way defenseman that he was in his younger days, but the 39-year-old Bruins captain can still bring it in flashes.
One of those flashes came on Sunday night in Boston when Chara cut through the Canadiens defense with some slick stick work. The six-foot-nine Chara dangled around Montreal forward Alexander Radulov and avoided the stick check of another defender before unleashing a quick shot on net. That shot was fired past Habs goalie Carey Price and tucked just under the crossbar to cap off an impressive highlight.
It was just a small part of the Bruins’ dominant night against Montreal, as Boston shut out their arch rival 4-0 at home. That makes three straight wins for the Bruins under interim coach Bruce Cassidy as they attempt to keep pace in the East playoff race following the firing of former head coach Claude Julien last week.
