Zdeno Chara set for return to Boston as Caps face Bruins

Had it been scheduled later this month, Zdeno Chara's first game back in Boston after 14 years with the Bruins could have coincided with the recently approved return of fans to TD Garden.

But that's not how it worked out for the Washington Capitals defenseman. As it stands, it makes no difference to him as the Capitals prepare to visit the Bruins for the first time this season on Wednesday night.

"The environment (in Boston) is something I was very close with for many years, but I think we all have to realize that once the puck is dropped, you really have to focus on what's going on inside the glass and just perform," said the 43-year-old Chara, who is averaging 19:24 of ice time in his first season with the Capitals.
