Bruins-Lightning; Chara out again

The Bruins need to get back on track tonight against Tampa Bay. However, they will be without their captain, as Zdeno Chara will miss another game tonight with an upper body injury. Peter Chiarelli and Claude Julien both stated that it Chara's injury is minor and that he is day-to-day.

For tonight's game the Bruins must shut down Martin St.Louis and Vinny Lecavalier. They will be without Chara so that means the rest of the defense must step up. If the Bruins win this game big games must come from Ward, Stuart, and Wideman, the latter of the two will probably log the most minutes against Tampa's top line. They must also stay out of the box since Tampa has the 7th rank powerplay in the league. The Bruins have no excuse to lose at home to the worst team in the Eastern Conference. If the Bruins drop another game to a bad team then they better start looking over their shoulder. This is not the time to be playing their worst hockey of the year.

Tim Thomas will get the nod in goal tonight over Alex Auld. Auld started the last 3 games. Thomas has no fared well in his previous two outings, allowing 5 and 7 goals respectively.

Note from practice: Bergeron, Alberts, and Fernandez all skated today. No updates on any of them, but Fernandez is said to be the closest to returning to action.
