Bruins' Chara out 4-6 weeks with knee injury

Friday, 10.24.2014 / 3:01 PM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Friday that defenseman Zdeno Chara will miss 4-6 weeks with a tear in the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Chiarelli said there are no plans for Chara to have surgery and the captain's return "might be a little bit earlier than four weeks, but a conservative time frame would be 4-6 weeks."

News like that can be discouraging to even the deepest, most talented teams. Coach Claude Julien, however, said he doesn't expect his team to be down in the dumps.

"There's no discouragement in that room," Julien said. "There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey. … You have those things happen. And you know you've got to hope that your team is strong enough as a whole to overcome these things. Did we lose a good player? We did. Is he a big part of our team? Yes he is. But … I'd like to think we're better than that, than feel sorry for ourselves or be discouraged. That's not the case in our dressing room right now."

Incoming Islanders owners to continue Wang's vision

Wednesday, 10.22.2014 / 5:04 PM / News

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Scott Malkin and Jon Ledecky will spend the next two years getting a hands-on course on how to run the New York Islanders. Their teacher: current owner Charles Wang.

Malkin and Ledecky were introduced Wednesday as the incoming owners of the Islanders. They will hold a minority interest in the team for two seasons before taking over as majority owners, with Wang retaining a minority interest.

"Life has its moments of opportunity, and you have to decide whether you're going to step forward," Malkin said when asked why he and Ledecky wanted to buy a franchise that has made the Stanley Cup Playoffs once since 2007 and hasn't won a series since 1993. "Charles gave us that opportunity. For us, we saw this as a moment that we could embrace things that we believed in and embrace the Islanders and what they stand for.

"The vision that Charles has created of the team, the new arena, the strength on which to build, those were very important to us."

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
