Zdeno Chara and Patrick Marron Drop The Gloves For Heavyweight Fight In First Period
- Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara probably is pretty frustrated with his team’s performance as of late.
- After dropping the mitts with Washington Capitals forward Tom Wilson on Wednesday, Chara did not hesitate to stir the pot once again on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
- The 42-year-old and Bolts forward Pat Maroon got in a tussle seconds after the puck was dropped at Amalie Arena.
- According to HockeyFights.com, Chara hadn’t fought in two straight games since 2008, just his third season as B’s captain.
- The B’s have dropped their past four games, so Chara rightfully is irritated after Boston got out to a hot start and first in the Atlantic Division.
- He most likely was trying to give his team some juice early on to send a message.
- Also, Maroon was a thorn in the Bruins’ side in last year’s Stanley Cup Final as a member of the St. Louis Blues, so that may have played a role in Chara’s decision to fight him.
