Zdeno Chara Feels Bad That He Broke You, Ryan Callahan

On Monday night, Zdeno Chara's blistering slap shot broke the ankle of Rangers forward Ryan Callahan, smashing the bone into a thousand pieces and rendering Callahan incapable of movement. (That's an exaggeration.)

On Tuesday, Chara acknowledged a bit of regret for what happened. Via CSNNE.com:

"Callahan is a top-six guy yet he still plays with so much heart and grit. You don't see many guys that throw their bodies around to block shots like that," said Chara. "He plays the game so hard. You have to respect a guy like that. I heard after the game that he'd probably broken a bone, so I just hope that he's okay long term."

That's Zdeno Chara, essentially saying "damn, sometimes having a 106 MPH slap shot kind of sucks."
