Bruins looking much stronger on the power play

Team has a revamped unit and strategy

Zdeno Chara stands, stick ready, body working. He fights for space, his elbow moving around the torso of an opposing defenseman, a little bump pushing his 6-foot-9-inch frame and 255 pounds into better position.

This, for now, is the face of the Bruins’ new-look power play, a big body in a big spot for a team that has struggled significantly on what should be an advantage. Their power play rated poorly — a tie for 25th — in the NHL in 2012-13.
