The Boston Bruins were back at practice on Monday, unfortunately it didn't go as planned. 

There was a bit of a scary sight when defenseman Zdeno Chara was hit in the face by a puck. 

Chara had to be helped off the ice by his teammates and didn't return. 

Luckily for the Bruins the word from the team is that Chara won't need any stitches and should be ready to go Tuesday night when they play Carolina. 

They'll need Chara around as they try and keep rolling their league leading 16 game point streak.
