BOSTON — According to ESPN Boston, a team source has confirmed that Zdeno Chara will be part of the Bruins lineup when the team faces a must win situation in Game 2 against the Montreal Canadiens.
Chara was sent to the hospital late last night due to dehydration and was released earlier today.
Head coach Claude Julien expected Chara to suit up tonight when he spoke to the media after the optional skate.
But an even more interesting twist might have occurred when Habs forward Michael Cammalleri spoke to the media today after their morning skate.
When asked about if he expects Chara to play, Cammalleri let everyone know that he is no doctor and even took a shot at Mark Recchi after his remarks on “Felger and Mazz” on 98.5 The Sports Hub a month ago when he indicated that Montreal embellished the severity of Max Pacioretty’s injury in order to get Chara suspended.
“I’m no MD, so I’m not going to be like Mark Recchi and diagnose the other team,” he said.
Between Cammalleri’s remarks today and David Krejci’s bold comments at practice yesterday, the war of the words between the two squads is just starting to heat up.
