BOSTON, MA - From his knees in the high slot, Zdeno Chara punched both arms into the air, threw his head back and let out a yell. The Garden crowd roared around him.
Big Zee has emotion pulsing through his 6-foot-9, 255-pound frame. And it fills every inch of the 200-by-85 foot sheet of the ice surface once he sets a skate on it, and stretches up into the rafters.
"Every day he comes in, he shows the guys the direction that we need to go in. He always comes up big at the big times, you saw with that assist on my goal, and again the game-winner and how he sticks up for his teammates. We’re very lucky to have him."
- Brad Marchand
