Charas’ IG post after the first Caps goal is bittersweet for BS fans originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Add Zdeno Chara to the list of former iconic Boston athletes who are succeeding with their new clubs.
If Chara’s goal was not strange enough for B’s fans, his new Capitals teammates bullied him after the score in a moment of pure excitement.
The 43-year-old clearly appreciated the abundance of his teammates and expressed that appreciation on Friday in an Instagram post.
Chara did not fit into Bruin’s plans this season as they play their success on a young D-core led by Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk. But it really looks like he fits into Washington, which holds the NHL’s second-best record outside the 5-0-3 gate.
The goals are likely to be few and far between for Chara, who turned on the light just five times during each of her last two seasons with the Bruins. The 20-year-old veteran is still a solid defender who provides plenty of leadership, and he seems to love his Capitals teammates so far.
The Bruins will get their first look at Chara in a different uniform Saturday night when they visit Washington. Expect a few hugs before the match – but do not expect B’s to tweet its former captain.
“We do not want to sting the bear,” Bruins winger Brad Marchand said Friday night.
