Chara feeling much better
Zdeno Chara was actively involved throughout Wednesday's practice at lake PLacid and showed no lingering effects from the dehydration issues that ruled him out of Game 2.

Chara played in Monday's Game 3, a 4-2 win by Boston, and played a bit more than 26 minutes. He had an assist, blocked three shots and doled out three hits. And, it appears two days of rest here in Lake Placid have only made Chara stronger on the eve of Thursday's game 4 at the Bell Centre

"I'm feeling much better," Chara said after Thursday's practice.

Chara's improvement hasn't escaped the attention of his teammates either.

"The other day, when they pulled him out of the game, he looked like he was going to die any second," defenseman Dennis Seidenberg said. "I think he's totally recovered and he looks fine to me."
Quote of the Day

I'll be happy, believe me, if we win our last playoff game. Not taking anything away, but we've had a fairly good lead for a while now. It would be more surprising if we didn't get the division. Business as usual.
