Zdeno Chara Hospitalized for Dehydration

Zdeno Chara was hospitalized Friday for dehydration. The Bruins confirmed this, and that Chara was still being attended to by their medical staff. Chara participated in Friday’s skate, but his status for Game 2 Saturday in Boston is up in the air.

Chara played 25:06 in Game 1, but was more sluggish than usual, and was more easily beaten than he usually is. He will be needed at full strength if Boston has any hope of winning the series, much less avoiding a sweep. You know Montreal will be motivated after losing Max Pacioretty to Chara’s hit.

Game 3 is in Montreal on Monday. At least Boston won’t have do deal with the criminal investigation on Chara, as Montreal police abandoned it earlier in the week. They clearly had no case to begin with, as the footage shows the injury part was an accident, and it was self-righteous fans that flooded 911 during an old, non-emergency situation. So rehydrate and hit away, Big Z.
