Zdeno Chara gives Bruins power-play big advantage

When the Bruins go on the power play, it’s easy enough to spot Zdeno Chara. He’s 6 feet 9 inches, and he is frequently taking up most of the space in front of the opponent’s goal, ready to tip shots or pick up rebounds. But he’s also on the move on the power play, and that’s how he confounded the Calgary Flames Tuesday night, scoring a pair of power-play goals as the Bruins knocked out a 2-0 victory.

Chara connected so well with power-play partners Jarome Iginla and David Krejci, the trio looked like a tried and true forward line. But Chara reminded that effort can pay off just as chemistry can.
