Chara-Dive8934

Watch as Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara trying to draw a tripping penalty on Brendan Gallagher in a pure case of embellishment. Chara’s antics came back to haunt him as he scored on himself off a deflection less than ten minutes later.

There’s no need for diving in the game and as the captain of the B’s hockey club, that’s not setting a very good example. The former Norris Trophy winner knows better.

Boston was eliminated from the playoffs as the Montreal Canadiens went on to win the game 3-1 and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. They will be facing the New York Rangers.
