BOSTON — Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara returned to practice and worked out with the full squad Monday, his first such workout since sitting out Boston's Eastern Conference-clinching victory over Carolina with an undisclosed injury.

Chara had skated prior to practices over the weekend but didn't participate in any full sessions. He said he felt good after the Bruins' 45-minute workout on Monday and is on track to play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on May 27.

Chara was the first player on the ice Monday. Forward David Krejci also returned to practice. Coach Bruce Cassidy said Krejci was given a "maintenance day" on Sunday.

Chara returns to practice, anxious to play in Stanley Cup Final In completing the sweep over the Carolina Hurricanes last Thursday, the Boston Bruins bought Zdeno Chara 11 days to recover from an undisclosed injury, and the captain says he's "taking it one day at a time" in order to return for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final on May 27, according to NHL.com's Eric Russo. Chara returned to practice on Monday and worked out with the full team for the first time since sitting out the Bruins' conference-clinching victory. The 42-year-old won a cup with the Bruins in 2011 and has been a part of many series-clinching victories over his career.

Being a spectator for a series-clinching victory was difficult for the 42-year-old Chara. He was a member of the Bruins, who defeated Vancouver to win the Stanley Cup in 2011 and lost to Chicago in the Cup Final in 2013.

"It was, I'm not gonna lie," Chara said. "Watching games are not fun. You want to play them, you want to be involved in them. It was that feeling of an anxiousness to play. But the guys did a great job."

But Chara was easy to spot following the Game 4 win over the Hurricanes, when he suited up to shake hands with Carolina and celebrate on the ice with his teammates.

He has one goal and two assists in 16 games this post-season.

Patrice Bergeron said having Chara paired back up with Charlie McAvoy provides a major boost to the blue line.
