Bruins hope to have a healthy Chara for Stanley Cup Final

BOSTON (AP) The Bruins were able to sweep Carolina in the Eastern Conference final without captain Zdeno Chara.

Now they're hoping 10 days off before the start of the Stanley Cup Final will be enough time for the defenseman to return.

The title round begins May 27 when Boston will face San Jose or St. Louis, with that conference final 2-2. The Bruins completed their sweep Thursday with Chara out with an undisclosed injury.
