Chara and Lucic collide during warmups

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins left wing Milan Lucic and defenseman Zdeno Chara had a collision during pregame warmups Monday night at TD Garden, but both were in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks.

However, CBC analyst Glenn Healy reported that Chara needed stitches in the back of his head after warmups. Chara played nine shifts totaling 6:58 in the first period and was on the ice for every one of Chicago captain Jonathan Toews' eight shifts.

Chara had to leave the ice midway through the period, but it appeared to be an equipment issue. He still played nine shifts and saw 6:58 of ice time. Lucic, who apparently came away unscathed from the collision, played six shifts totaling 4:52 in the first period.
