Following the conclusion of the last regulation game for the Boston Bruins against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 10 and the beginning of a pandemic due to the virus, COVID-19, it has been over four months without professional hockey. Four months is a long time, and you may have forgotten about some things that happened during the Bruins' shortened regular season.
At 43-years-old, Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara is not only the oldest defenseman in the National Hockey League, but also the oldest active player in its entirety.And he is just getting older… Chara turns 43 today, March 18. But despite his age, Chara is playing at a level as if he is years younger.
David Krejci tallied the game-winning goal as the Bruins came from behind to defeat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 at the TD Garden in Boston.
