It’s been only few days, but I can still hear the overwhelming cheers and applause from our fans. I knew we had the best fans ,but I didn’t realized how special and remarkable you are till I stood in front of you before Game 5.It was an unbelievable experience to have your support. I couldn’t help to fight back tears, but so happy to respond to adversity and be there with my teammates. It was unbelievable feeling of pride and honor to be a Bostonian. We as Bruins fell short of our team goal, but we’re so grateful that we made you proud.This group of players and coaches are very special.I can’t say enough about how many times our team responded the right way to adversity and embrace the challenges. We believe in hard work.We treat each other equally and with respect.We trust each other and depend on each other, but mostly we love to play for this community. On behalf of all of the players and from the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of our fans for your support and loyalty this year. We never could have made it this far without you. We will be back…

  • Just four days after the Bruins lost to the Blues in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, captain Zdeno Chara saluted Bruins’ fans on his Instagram account.
  • Zdeno Chara was one of the biggest stories of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final.
  • Chara played in Games 5, 6, and 7 after fracturing his jaw in Game 4.
  • The often stoic leader was emotional about the reaction he received upon returning in Game 5, writing “I can still hear the overwhelming cheers and applause from our fans.”
  • This was a great gesture by the 42-year-old captain and long-time Bruin.
  • It’s no surprise that he acknowledged the fan support and in particular, the rousing applause he got before playing in Game 5 with the broken jaw.
  • He truly loves the Boston and fans, and the feeling is mutual.
