Quick Sets Record For Kings – NHL Roundup
UNDATED (AP) — On NHL ice, the Boston Bruins lost the game to the New York Islanders 3-2 and then waited to find out how long they will be without their captain and No. 1 defenseman, Zdeno Chara (ZAY'-noh CHAH'-rah).
The 2009 Norris Trophy winner left in the first period with an undisclosed injury and didn't return. Coach Claude Julien (ZHOO'-lee-ehn) said after the game he had no update, but inside the Boston locker room, Chara's teammates seemed resigned to a long absence.
Former Bruins backup Chad Johnson stopped 30 shots, and Kyle Okposo scored the go-ahead goal in the second period for the Isles.
