Here are some assorted quotes on Zdeno Chara after the Bruins’ 5-1 win. Chara scored two goals and assisted on another.
Bruins coach Claude Julien:
“I think he was good and obviously I keep talking about him and [Dennis] Seidenberg has been certainly one of those guys that you throw into that equation. Those guys have been so strong for us, not only as a pair, but also as individuals. As you saw, Zdeno’s shot is one that certainly goaltenders don’t like to see. He’s got that ability and tonight I thought he used it well.”
Forward Daniel Paille:
“Zee, he’s dominant. You can see it especially today. Obviously with his shot it’s a cannon, so you don’t want to get hit by that. But it’s nice to see him score two nice goals like that. And I think that’s what he likes. And obviously it’s nice to see no one get hurt from the shot … from our team anyway.”
Goalie Tim Thomas:
“It is great to see him get that offense going. He has that potential. He’s got an amazing shot. Ask the opposing goalies that are facing it. It is no fun to see that guy winding up on you. He gets himself in the right spots in getting those goals. It makes it easier on the whole team.”
