BOSTON — Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara was the second player to take the ice behind starting goaltender Tim Thomas for tonight’s Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with Montreal.
But he will not play tonight.
Chara, who was hospitalized yesterday for dehydration, is listed on the official game sheet as a scratch. Shane Hnidy is in the lineup in his place.
Here are the Bruins’ lines and D pairs as per the warm-up:
Montreal’s Andrei Kostitsyn, who missed the morning skate today, took the warm-up but is scratched. Jeff Halpern filled Kostistyn’s slot in the morning skate but did not go on the ice for warm-ups. Yannick Weber was added to the Montreal lineup.
