Chara out for at least a month.


Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara left the team's game against the New York Islanders on Thursday night with a knee injury.

Chara has a suspected left knee ligament injury. The veteran defenceman is expected to be out 4-6 weeks, at which time Boston will evaluate whether Chara needs surgery or not.

Chara had a collision with Islanders captain John Tavares midway through the first, then played one more shift that ended with 8:04 remaining in the period. There was no outward indication of an injury at that time.

The 6-foot-9 Slovakian, a third-round pick of the Islanders in 1996, is Boston's No. 1 defenceman and spends more time on the ice than any other Bruins player. He has two goals and an assist in nine games this season.
