Why? Because Chara will play against Ovie and they both will log a ton of minutes tomorrow...

TORONTO - They're doing it in honour of their parents, deceased friends and former hockey coaches. But above all, NHL players are choosing to give back in support of the international humanitarian organization Right To Play.
Alex Ovechkin, Zdeno Chara, Joe Thornton and Daniel Alfredsson are among a group of 28 NHL players who will make donations to the charity based on the numbers of minutes they play in one of their games this weekend.
Each will make their donation on behalf of a role model.

* Zdeno Chara has not decided how much he will donate to Right To Play tomorrow. Chara will make a donation based on ice time -- Andrew Ference said he will contribute $100 per minute -- and based on his expected matchup against Alex Ovechkin, the captain should be getting plenty of action.
