Bruins lose Chara for 4-6 weeks with knee injury (The Associated Press)

The Boston Bruins will spend the next four to six weeks trying to fill the hole left by an injury to the tallest player in NHL history. Defenseman Zdeno Chara tore the posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee but will not need surgery, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said. The team called up two minor-league defensemen on Friday to replace the 6-foot-9 Slovakian who was the 2009 Norris Trophy winner and plays more minutes than any other Bruins skater. ''But I'd rather have it four to six weeks than four to six months.'' Chara left Thursday night's game against the Islanders in the first period, one shift after a collision with New York forward John Tavares.

Staying patient, Drouin among hot fantasy topics (NHL)

Last week I advised owners to stay patient with some players that were struggling early on. At that time, San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture had one point in four games. Fans were asking if they should look to trade or drop him (crazy, but true). I advised his owners to stay patient with the 25-year-old forward. In his next four games he went on to record four goals and three assists.

Islanders beat Bruins 3-2, Chara injured (The Associated Press)

The Boston Bruins lost the game to the New York Islanders 3-2 and then waited to find out how long they will be without their captain and No. 1 defenseman, Zdeno Chara. Coach Claude Julien said after the game he had no update, but inside the Boston locker room, Chara's teammates seemed resigned to a long absence. ''He's a presence in all aspects of the game,'' said Bruins forward Chris Kelly, who scored to cut a two-goal deficit in half midway through the third period. We're going to miss him.'' Former Bruins backup Chad Johnson stopped 30 shots, and Kyle Okposo scored the go-ahead goal in the second period to help New York snap a two-game losing streak.
