Boston Bruins captain Zdeno Chara skated before practice Sunday, his first action since sitting out Thursday's Game 4 win against the Carolina Hurricanes with an undisclosed injury.
The 42-year-old veteran skated with fellow injured defenseman Steven Kampfer and did some drills with skills coach Kim Brandvold, but he did not participate in the full practice.
The Bruins swept the Hurricanes and won't play again for more than a week as they await the winner of the Western Conference finals. The San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues are tied 2-2 in the best-of-seven series entering Game 5 on Sunday in San Jose, Calif.
The Stanley Cup Final starts on May 27.
A seven-time All-Star, Chara has one goal and two assists in 16 games this postseason. He had five goals and nine assists in 62 games during the regular season, his 21st in the NHL.
