Boston, MA, United States (4E Sports) - Boston Bruins defenseman and team captain Zdeno Chara may return to action when they take on the Florida Panthers Monday at TD Garden, according to coach Claude Julien .

According to Julien , it will be more likely than probable that Chara will play for the first time since sustaining a lower-body injury in the second period against the St. Louis Blues on Nov. 22.

"I felt good," Chara said after practicing with the Bruins at Warrior Ice Arena. He missed the past six games where the Bruins went 3-2-1 and allowed 10 goals.

"Any time you're coming back to the team it's a good feeling, it's an exciting feeling. Obviously it's probable for tonight," added Chara , who has one goal, five assists and a plus-12 rating in 19 games.

.

In addition to Chara , the Bruins played without John-Michael Liles the past three games because of a concussion.

"Just the way we've played it as a group I think it's been pretty consistent," Julien said. "Not just last game but the last few weeks or so. We've really done a good job of minimizing goals-against."

Defenseman Torey Krug missed the morning skate because of illness but is expected to play.
