Bruins forward Gregory Campbell will miss the remainder of the playoffs with a broken right fibula, the club announced today.
The 29-year-old suffered the broken leg blocking an Evgeni Malkin shot last night on a Penguins power play. Campbell remained on the ice until the puck was cleared, but was obviously injured.
“For what he went through, he showed a lot of guts to stay out there and to still try and play,” head coach Claude Julien said. “Obviously it was a pretty serious injury, so that’s just the kind of player he is, and it doesn’t surprise me, it doesn’t surprise his teammates, but certainly it shows the character of that player, and that’s why we appreciate having him on our team.”
Campbell finishes the postseason with three goals and four assists in 15 games, and no other Bruins forward has spent more time (32:04) killing penalties.
