Bruins Captain Zdeno Chara A Game-Time Decision In Montreal

Habs' Kostitsyn, Bruins' Chara skate before Game 3

      MONTREAL (AP) – Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Montreal
Canadiens winger Andrei Kostitsyn are back skating before Game 3 of
their playoff series, but both coaches are waiting to announce a
decision on whether they'll play.
      Boston coach Claude Julien says it's “looking good” for Chara
to return but won't confirm he will be in the lineup Monday night.
The 6-foot-9 defenseman missed Game 2 on Saturday with what the
team said was a case of dehydration. Chara did not speak to the
      Kostitsyn missed Game 2 with a foot injury. He was skating on
the right wing with center Tomas Plekanec and Michael Cammalleri.
      Montreal coach Jacques Martin says he'll make game-time
decisions on Kostitsyn and forward Jeff Halpern, who hasn't suited
up since late in the regular season. Halpern has been skating with
the team for a week.
      Kostitsyn was injured while blocking Chara's shot in Game 1.
      Montreal leads the series 2-0.
