Big trouble for Bruins: Chara out 4-6 weeks, possibly more

(Photo/Getty Images) Was it irony, or sheer luck that the Boston Bruins lost their best defenseman on the night that they played the recently traded Johnny Boychuk? Everyone knew that this day would eventually come, but we didn’t know when it would be here.
