Chara Honored at TD Garden for His 1,000th Game

BOSTON, MA -– Before the puck drop for Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, a special ceremony was held to commemorate Boston Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara on playing his 1,000th career game Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings.

With the lights dimmed, a video that featured highlights of Chara’s career, as well as comments from Bruins legend John “Chief” Bucyk, Head Coach Claude Julien, Milan Lucic, Andrew Ference and Patrice Bergeron played on GardenHDX - the arena’s central center ice scoreboard.

NESN color-commentator Andy Brickley facilitated the ceremony, while Chara – accompanied by his wife Tatiana and daughter Elliz Victoria – received flowers from alternate captains Bergeron, Ference and Chris Kelly.
