Encouraging news for Bruins fans – Zdeno Chara might not miss as much time as expected with a suspected left knee injury.

How’s the big defenseman feeling today?

“Good, good, better than I expected,” said Chara, as reported by the Boston Herald. “The plan is to take it a day at a time. You can’t really put a time frame on it. It’s about how it feels, and it feels better than I expected. And then we go from there, see how it is tomorrow. You really know when you sleep on it, (see how it) the next day. So far, it’s been really good. It’s something I’m pleased with. There’s no time frame on when I might be back. Most likely I won’t be playing tomorrow, but that’s all I can tell you right now.”

The B’s host Los Angeles tomorrow, then hit the road for two games against Ottawa (Wednesday) and Philadelphia (Saturday).

    “Hmm? Ligament damage? No, I, ah… I just get the bolts tightened and wiring checked, that’s all.”
