Chara says Bruins need more screens to beat goalies

An extraordinary performance from Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped the Bruins in their tracks Thursday night as they launched 39 shots at the veteran goalie in a 2-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

After the game, the Bruins repeatedly talked about the need to “take away the eyes” of the opposing goaltender, and following a rigorous half-hour practice Friday, they picked apart their missing net-front presence, an especially compelling exercise because Saturday’s matinee opponent is the Columbus Blue Jackets, who also have a hot goalie in last year’s Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky. It will be the first road game of the season for the 2-1-0 Bruins.
