WASHINGTON - Zdeno Chara does not often make mistakes on the defensive side of his game. But in the third period of Game 3 Monday, there was the Boston strongman, looking at the wrong end of Brooks Laich - the back of the No. 1 center’s jersey.
The Bruins were in control. They had a 3-2 third-period lead. Chara and top-pairing mate Dennis Seidenberg were on the ice, patrolling the neutral zone.
