And Sharks forward Joe Pavelski made Zdeno Chara and the D pay for their sloppy play.

Claude Julien's Pairing of Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg Adding Confidence to Bruins Defense (Video)

Zdeno Chara is certainly a deserving captain for the Boston Bruins. But the 6-foot-9 defenseman was having his fair share of struggles, along with the rest of the B's, over the past few months.
