Report: Chara to miss a week of action
December 11, 2011, 10:16 pm

When Zdeno Chara left Saturday night's 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in the second period with apparent leg injury, it was unclear how serious the damage was.

Now, the Boston Globe is reporting that Chara will miss a week of action -- at home against the Los Angeles Kings, and then on the road in Ottawa, and Philadelphia.

If all goes according to plan, Chara could return to the ice Dec. 19 in Boston against the Montreal Canadiens.

Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty reports, however, that the Bruins aren't confirming the Globe report, and Chara is listed as "day to day with lower body injury"
