BOSTON (AP) Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara returned to practice and worked out with the full squad Monday, his first such workout since sitting out Boston's Eastern Conference-clinching victory over Carolina with an undisclosed injury.
Chara had skated prior to practices over the weekend but didn't participate in any full sessions. He said he felt good after the Bruins' 45-minute workout on Monday and is on track to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on May 27.
Chara was the first player on the ice Monday. Forward David Krejci also returned to practice. Coach Bruce Cassidy said Krejci was given a "maintenance day" on Sunday.
