Chara (torn PCL) doesn't need surgery
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday morning that Zdeno Chara‘€™s injury is a torn posterior cruciate ligament that will keep him out for four to six weeks. Chiarelli said that Chara does not need surgery.

The Bruins also recalled defensemen Joe Morrow and Zach Trotman from Providence Friday. Chiarelli said that the multiple defensemen callup was partially due to “a couple of little things” players are battling, but that he thinks “it will be OK.”

Chiarelli hinted that he will not look to the trade market for a replacement for Chara, responding to such a question with “four to six weeks, we’€™ll have him back.”

The B’€™s GM also said that Chara could return before the four-week mark, and that the four-to-six week window was a conservative estimate.

Belichick on Revis: 'Between myself and player'

brightcove.createExperiences();

FOXBORO — The question was waiting to be asked but Bill Belichick wasn’t about to provide an answer.

Still, Kevin Walsh of Comcast Sports New England asked the Patriots coach exactly what happened with Darrelle Revis on Tuesday, when the star cornerback was a no-show at practice.

The Boston Globe reported a day later that Belichick sent Revis home after he overslept and showed up late to a team meeting. Revis reportedly came back later in the day and apologized to Belichick.

Before the news broke, Revis was asked Wednesday by ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss if Tuesday’s day off was just a “mental break” day.

“That’s between me and coach,” Revis...

Boychuk has 'interesting' return to Boston

The toughest part of Thursday night’s return to Boston for Johnny Boychuk came during the national anthem.

“Just feeling the atmosphere and being back on the ice,” Boychuk said. “I tried not to look anywhere but just concentrate, and be prepared for the game. That was the most difficult part, but after the first couple shifts, then it’€™s time to get going.”

Boychuk was a plus-1 in 23 minutes and 25 shifts in the Islanders’ 3-2 win over the his former team at TD Garden. Only one of his “Johnny Rockets” found its way on net and it was stopped. He had two blocked shots and two giveaways. Boychuk did not figure in the scoring but was just happy to be apart of a night of appreciation from the Bruins fans who had watched him grow up in Boston.

“It was an interesting night,” Boychuk said. “...
