Chara speaks in aftermath of Pacioretty hit
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara spoke briefly with reporters after the Black & Gold's practice at Ristuccia Memorial Arena.

"We had the hearing this morning, I haven't heard back," said the defenseman when asked about the hearing regarding his hit on Montreal's Max Pacioretty in the second period of yesterday's 4-1 Bruins loss to the Canadiens.

Asked about the play, Chara said, "It's just one of those things…like glass extensions, doors, even hockey nets are part of the game and obviously players run into them.

"It's just very, very unfortunate that a player got hurt."

This is a big year for us in a lot of ways. You can see Garth and management really trying to find that solution to get us into the playoffs and consistently have that. The pressure is great. You have to enjoy it. It just means there's a great opportunity ahead of you.
