Zdeno Chara returns to the ice

Zdeno Chara [1], who travelled with the team to Ottawa Tuesday night, returned to the ice Wednesday morning for the first time since suffering a leg injury Saturday night in Columbus.

According to the Boston Globe, Chara skated with Jordan Caron, who figures to be a healthy scratch once again, for 35 minutes. Chara is not expected to play vs. the Senators, but could play Saturday against the Flyers.

‘€œI felt OK,’€ Chara told the Boston Globe after skating. ‘€œFirst skate. First time on the ice in 3-4 days. I didn’€™t expect to be feeling great. But also, I didn’€™t feel bad. It’€™s a good sign. You’€™re going to have those days. Slowly progressing.’€
