Chara Goes Quiet

from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE,

Chara was also out on the ice for all three of Montreal’s goals in the final few minutes of the third period and the overtime session, and he clearly had some explaining to do.

Chara’s icing attempt at an empty-net goal with Carey Price yanked from the Montreal net turned out be a big play in the game: it forced a face-off in Boston’s defensive zone with their fourth line on the ice when it missed wide of the net by a mere four inches.

That sequence of events perfectly set up Brian Gionta’s game-tying goal second later after a James Wisniewski point shot bounced off both Tim Thomas’ skate and Gionta’s skate before skidding by the stunned B’s goaltender.

Chara was his usual solid Slovakian presence throughout the game, and the B’s Captain went cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs after the game was over.

Good for Chara, that was a bush-league move by Pacioretty after the goal. No class at all.
