Bruins try to cope without 'irreplaceable' Chara

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
Since Zdeno Chara joined the Boston Bruins over eight years ago the club has rarely had to get by without their star defenseman.
That's all about to change.
Chara left Thursday's game against the New York Islanders and he won't be coming back for at least a month. Considering how Boston fared without its captain in the lineup for the majority of Thursday's tilt, the B's will be counting the days until the heart and soul of the team is back on the ice.
