B's cope with losing 'irreplaceable' Chara

If there’s any silver lining to losing your captain and best defenseman for an indefinite period, the Bruins can take some comfort in the fact they’ve been down this road before.

The Bruins lost Dennis Seidenberg to a torn ACL last season. They lost Chris Kelly to a broken leg last December and a back injury just before the playoffs. The 2013 team made the Stanley Cup final despite the loss of Gregory Campbell to a broken leg in the Eastern Conference finals. Just a week ago, Kevin Miller dislocated his shoulder in a fight in Montreal and has been lost indefinitely.

But when the Islanders John Tavares’ right knee...

Chili Davis: 'Cespy is a special player'

In a conference call introducing Chili Davis as the new Red Sox hitting coach, the former A’s instructor talked about how he viewed one of his former player’s in Oakland, Yoenis Cespedes.

Cespedes and Davis were together since the outfielder’s arrival with the A’s up until his trade to the Red Sox at the non-waiver trade deadline this past season.

“Cespy is a special player, just a very special player with a lot of talent,” Davis said. “We saw that in Oakland and I’€™m sure that’€™s why they brought him here from Cuba and put him right into the big leagues. Big game guy, loves the noise, loves the lights. I feel like we formed a relationship but we weren’€™t quite finished building that relationship from the relationship we formed it...

Thin B's defense struggles in loss to Islanders
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins’€™ latest lost hurt more than usual, as Zdeno Chara left Thursday’€™s 3-2 loss to the Islanders after just five shifts in the first period.

The team announced at the start of the second period that Chara would not be retuning to the game, though they did not specify why. With Chara out, the B’€™s were forced to play with five defensemen the rest of the way.

Chara and Dougie Hamilton were both beaten in front early on in the night as Frans Nielsen took a pass from Josh Bailey and put it behind Niklas Svedberg at 6:21 of the first. Milan Lucic answered back with his first goal of the season, which came off a nice play from linemate Seth Griffith.

The Bruins struggled...
