Gregory Campbell has a broken right fibula (calf bone) and will miss the remainder of the NHL playoffs, according to an NHL report. Campbell was blocking a slap shot from the Penguins' Evgeni Malkin during the Eastern Conference finals on Wednesday night.
Campbell is known for being one of the team's toughest players. From the NHL report:
"That's the way he is," said Boston center Patrice Bergeron. "He sacrifices the body always for the team, for the better of the team. Obviously, we tried to rally behind that and do it for him because he's a big part of our team on and off the ice."
Campbell, 29, had 13 points in 48 games during the regular season. He scored 3 goals during the playoffs. The Bruins are up 3-0 on the Penguins; Game 4 will be on Friday at TD Garden.
