Chara played with plates, wires, screws to fix broken jaw

BOSTON (AP) Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara said he broke his jaw in multiple places and played the last three games of the Stanley Cup Final with "two plates, some wires and screws" holding it together.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Chara commended the team doctors who put his face back together after he was hit by a deflected puck in the first period of Game 4 of the championship series against the St. Louis Blues.

Chara left the game but returned to play the rest of the series.
