Zdeno Chara scores, Bruins lead Islanders after two

The power play drought is over, Zdeno Chara [1] is making noise on the scoring sheet, and the Bruins lead the Islanders 2-1 after the second period.

The Bruins captain scored his 12th goal of the season when sound passing by Tomas Kaberle [2] and David Krejci [3] led to a blast from the top of the left circle on a 5-on-3. It was the Bruins’ first goal in their last 22 power plays.

Chara drew both penalties, as he was held by Milan Jurcina and saw the Islanders turned a shorthanded bid into a Bruins 5-on-3 when Frans Nielson cross-checked him in the Bruins’ zone.

The Islanders broke up Tim Thomas [4] shutout bid when Matt Moulson scored his 29th of the season with two seconds left in the period and Brad Marchand [5] in the box for interference.
