Chara hospitalized for dehydration
According to a report in Saturday's Boston Herald, Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara spent Friday night in the hospital, receiving fluids to battle dehydration.

Boston spokesman Matt Chmura confirmed that Chara was in the hospital and is still being evaluated by Boston's medical personnel. His status for Saturday night's Game 2 is yet to be determined.

Chara skated in Friday's practice after playing a game-high 25 minutes and six seconds in Thursday's Game 1. He was, not, however, his usual dominating self. Several times, Montreal forwards beat him wide with speed in the attacking zone and he lost more puck battles than usual.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
