ESPN BOSTON: Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara received stitches over his left eye after catching an edge and colliding with teammate Milan Lucic before Monday’s Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. The injury was initially believed to be to the back of his head. The two collided on the ice in front of the Bruins’ bench with just more than three minutes remaining in pregame warmups. Both players lost their helmets. Chara quickly went to the dressing room, got the stitches and was on the ice in time for the puck drop. A.B. The Boston Bruins dodged a bullet here, especially since Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa was a late scratch in Game 3 – also rumored to have been hurt in warm ups. Maybe it was the ice. Maybe it was bad luck. But Chara in, even with stitches, and Hossa out as a late scratch seemed to bode well for the Bruins who took a 2-1 series lead tonight.
