The Bruins already lost Charlie McAvoy for Game 1 so they can’t afford to lose Zdeno Chara.
Zdeno Chara went to the locker room after suffering an apparent injury when blocking a shot off the stick of Hurricanes forward Sebastian Aho in Game 1 of the Conference Finals on Thursday.
The shot hit right off the outside of his right foot and he was clearly in pain on the bench.
Zdeno Chara with the shot block right off the side of the foot. Could be a tough loss already without Mcavoyhttps://t.co/AD4VEsy2Mk

Update: Chara was back on the bench to start the second period with the game tied 1-1. We’ll see if the shot has adverse effects on his performance.
