Flashback Friday: Donald Brashear vs. Zedano Chara 2008


See it here on Flickr
Only a short flashback to April of 2008 for today’s image. Zdeno Chara eyes Donald Brashear as they square off. Frustration mounted as the Capitals were on there way to a 10-2 romping of the Bruins. I was lucky enough to have been invited by a friend who came across an extra ticket directly behind the penalty box and it turned out to be the perfect location for this image.Judging the fight, I would say it was more of scrap, but by the look in Chara’s eyes, one would have thought it was an all out brawl.I originally posted this to my personal Flickr account and it has become my most viewed image with over 4700 views. Apparently fights may be more popular than even Alex Ovechkin, as the my favorite image of “Ovi” (our header image on The Capital Power Play) has ten times fewer views on Flickr than this image. Go figure?Also of interest for Zdeno Chara fans, there was a good article about him in Bicycling Magazine this month.
