The Boston Globe is reporting that Bruins defenseman and captain Zdeno Chara could be back in the lineup tomorrow in Philadelphia.

Chara (knee) practiced today in an Ottawa-area rink and reportedly did so “without limitations.”

According to the Globe, the Bruins “will see how Chara’s knee responds to today’s practice and the flight to Philadelphia before making a determination for tomorrow’s game.”

So hopefully he gets a seat on the plane with lots of leg room. On the exit row maybe. Nice to be able to stretch out.

Chara’s missed two games since hurting his knee Saturday in Columbus. The Bruins are 2-0-0 in his absence.

    I guess it was fortunate for the Bruins that they got to play the Kings and Senators when Chara was out of the lineup. It gave him a chance to get some rest too.

    Well this game just became that much more interesting. Can the Flyers (sans Pronger for the season and Giroux indefinitely) defeat a very hot and now healthier Bruins team in their only home game for the rest of the month? If the Flyers do win, I think it would be further proof that this team is a premier team and should be very dangerous when the playoffs come around. Let’s go Flyers!

    Good to have the big guy back in the lineup. They’re still a good team without him, but having a Norris winner back in your lineup can only make you better.
