If you didn’t already know that Zdeno Chara is a physical beast on the ice, he proved it once again today.

During the first period of the Bruins’ 4-3 loss to the Capitals, Chara laid a huge hit on Caps forward Marcus Johansson. The hit into the boards turned out to be forceful enough to shatter the glass as if it happened in a video game. Fear not, no one was hurt on the play or in the stands, so sit back and enjoy the sight of plexiglass turning into dust.
