CHICAGO (AP) - The idea that a little contact can throw off Zdeno Chara left Milan Lucic shaking his head and wondering who exactly is drawing up the scouting reports for the Chicago Blackhawks.
Sure, they went right at Boston's big, bad defenseman in Game 4. If they want to try that again, the Bruins had three words for them: bring it on.
Lucic says Chara ``definitely doesn't mind the physical play.''
The Blackhawks seem to believe they were on to something after they went at Chara in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals and came away with a 6-5 overtime victory.
That knotted the series at two games apiece as it shifts back to the United Center for Game 5 on Saturday.
