Boston, MA, United States (4E Sports) - Despite joining his teammates for the morning skate, Boston defenseman Zdeno Chara will miss his fifth straight game due to a lower-body injury when the Bruins take on the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday at TD Garden.
Chara suffered the lower-body injury in the second period against the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 22. Thursday was his first time on the ice with his teammates since the injury.
"He's out there skating but not playing tonight," coach Claude Julien said.
The Bruins are 1-2-1 without Chara , though they have allowed eight goals in four games.
The Bruins have received a boost with the return of defenseman Kevan Miller, who has averaged 19:55 of ice time in four games.
Against the Flyers, defenseman Torey Krug played a game-high 25:53 of ice time and had two assists.
