Boston Bruins Extend Captain Zdeno Chara



On Saturday the Boston Bruins announced that they have signed defenseman Zdeno Chara to a one-year extension

Per the team the deal is valued at $2 million plus an additional $1.75 million in performance based incentives keeping him with the club through the 2019-2020 season.

Chara who is now 42-years-old has finally showed some signs of slowing down but still remains a lockdown defender in the NHL.

The Bruins approach with Chara might feel a little familiar for Boston Red Sox fans who saw that team take a similar approach with former knuckleballer Tim Wakefield who the team took a year-to-year approach with at the end of his career.

Chara and the Boston Bruins take on the Florida Panthers tonight at 7:00 pm.

Bruins Needs To Fix Their End Game Discipline Before Playoffs

Boston Bruins Need To Tighten Up Their End Game Before The Start Of Playoffs

Boston Bruins have been playing excellent hockey of late. They have scored 4 plus goals in all of the last 5 games. Two of those games were against playoff teams. Opposite that is the Bruins still control the second seed in the Atlantic. The only thing nagging them is allowing those late game goals. 

The Bruins game against the Tampa Lightning was a loss due to a late goal from Anthony Cirelli with only 53 seconds left in the game. That is just an unacceptable goal being this close to the playoffs.

Not only did it happen against the Lightning it happened last night in the Rangers game. Now the Bruins routed the Rangers by a score of 6-3. It was that third goal scored by Mika Zibanejad with only 4seconds left. Only 4 seconds left and they gave up a goal.

Giving up a goal that late in the game is not the to cap off a 6 goal night, where there had been stellar D prior to the goal. This is the time of year to square that kind of stuff up and get ready for the playoffs. Boston should not be allowing the team any kind of leeway in the final minutes of the game.

We saw this last night and against Tampa especially the forwards push when they should stay back and the D try and be aggressive in areas they need to hold. This happened on the tying goal in the Tampa Game. Brad Marchand made a nice steal at his blue line and it was a 3-2 rush. Then Charlie McAvoy tried to get involved. Pastrnak fell down after his shot.

Now Andrei Vasilevskiy made a great save but that gave Tampa numbers going the other way. Nikita Kucherov was also able to make a great shot off the rush and tie the game.

That brings up the next point Tuukka Rask is going to have to make some of those saves. That was a great shot by Kuch but Vasy had just made a huge save on the other end. If the Bruins are going to go deep in the playoffs Rask is going to have to come up with those saves.

Hopefully, the Bruins can clean up their end game before the playoffs, If they do that against the Leafs they won’t make it out of the first round.

In addition the team can play select exhibition games, Boston Bruins exhibition games, and select AHL exhibition games at the center as well. 

The AHL team beginning next season will pay the RICCA $20,000 for every regular season home game and going up $200 a game annually from there through the remainder of the contract. 

For any playoff game or exhibition game a flat rate of $7,500 will apply. For the remainder of the 2018-19 season the team will pay RICCA $8,979 per game.
