BOSTON (AP) The Boston Bruins lost the game to the New York Islanders 3-2 and then waited to find out how long they will be without their captain and No. 1 defenseman, Zdeno Chara.

The 2009 Norris Trophy winner left Thursday night's game in the first period with an undisclosed injury and didn't return. Coach Claude Julien said after the game he had no update, but inside the Boston locker room, Chara's teammates seemed resigned to a long absence.

"He's a presence in all aspects of the game," said Bruins forward Chris Kelly, who scored to cut a two-goal deficit in half midway through the third period. "He's a captain for a reason. He's played in 1,000 games. We're going to miss him."
