Melrose on D&C: Chara hit not dirty

Talking on the Dennis & Callahan Show with Dale Arnold and Gerry Callahan, ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose insisted that the hit Bruins' captain Zdeno Chara made on Montreal's Max Pacioretty in the Canadiens' 4-1 win over the B's Tuesday night was enough to warrant a suspension from the NHL.

 

 

"My thinking on it was that it wasn't a dirty hit," Melrose said. "Chara is finishing his check. Yeah, it could have been an interference penalty, but there's no way when you're running a guy off and finishing a check like that and you're going at full-speed like that that you know where that turnbuckle is on-purpose and you can run a guy in like that on-purpose. That just doesn't happen. Things happen too fast. You don't have the awareness on the ice. So obviously Chara was finishing his check and maybe it was interference...

Mashup: Artest says it's good to cry

Lakers guard Ron Artest weighed in on the Heat's crying saga by saying it's OK to let out your emotions. "In my psychology sessions, I sometimes cry with my therapist," he said in an interview on NBA TV. "We cry and hug each other; hold each other and talk. I think it’s a good thing to cry and let your emotions out rather than keep it inside." Artest added that he hoped someone hugged the unidentified Heat players who cried — according to Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, who later tried to change his story — after Sunday's loss to the Bulls. "I would have hugged them and got some ice cream," Artest said.

Report: Chara to have noon phone hearing

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Zdeno Chara is scheduled to have a phone hearing with the NHL's VP of hockey operations Mike Murphy regarding any sort of discipline that may be enforced following the Bruins' captain's hit on Max Pacioretty of the Canadiens during Montreal's 4-1 victory over the B's Tuesday night.

Chara: 'Not my style to hurt somebody'
By: DJ Bean

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara was given a five-minute interference major and a game misconduct when a hit along the boards forced Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty to hit his head on the glassed area and left him motionless on the ice. After the game, the Chara spoke about the play. 

 

"Obviously, that wasn't my intention to push him into the post," Chara told reporters following the game. "It's very unfortunate. In that situation, everything's happening fast, and you're not planning to do that. That's not my style to hurt somebody. I always play hard, play physical, but I never try to hurt anybody. I'm hoping he's OK."

 

"I think what people have to understand is Zdeno is not a dirty player," Bruins coach Claude Julien said in his NESN postgame interview with Naoko Funayama. "He certainly never meant for that to happen. I think if anything he tried to rub him out in the boards....

Bruins fall to Canadiens in Montreal
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins were beaten handily Tuesday night, dropping a 4-1 contest to the Canadiens and losing their captain for the third period at the Bell Centre. 

Canadiens forward Lars Eller scored two goals in the first period, with Brian Gionta and James Wisniewski adding power play goals in the second period. Eller entered the game with five goals through 61 games this season. 

Milan Lucic broke up Carey Price's shutout bid at 13:21 of the third period, scoring his 29th goal of the season.

A very scary moment came with 15.8 seconds remaining in the second period, when Zdeno Chara finished a check along the boards on Montreal forward Max Pacioretty. The 22-year-old hit the glassed area between benches before falling to the ice, remaining motionless as he was placed on a stretcher. Chara was given a five-minute major for interference, as well as a game misconduct. Pacioretty was reportedly able to move his extremities after leaving for the...
