The bad news, however, is that the B’s will have to continue their quest for the Cup without one of their core players. Gregory Campbell put himself in harm’s way in the B’s Game 3 win on Wednesday night, and it cost him. Campbell sold out to block an Evgeni Malkin slap shot and ended up breaking his leg in the process. Unsurprisingly, Campbell’s season is over. Campbell is rightfully getting praise for his willingness to do so, but the conversation will start shifting toward what the B’s will do in replacing Campbell in the lineup. One option would be to insert Kaspars Daugavins into the lineup. The former Ottawa Senators forward hasn’t played since Game 1 of the first round, but he does give the Bruins penalty-killing depth, which they’ll need in the absence of Campbell.

Bruins Gregory Campbell Finishes Penalty Kill on Broken Leg (Video)

Most people don’t understand how grueling a sport hockey is. I was big hockey fan growing up, but didn’t realize how tough it was until I started ice skating myself.

The first thing you realize is that the ice is VERY HARD and secondly it is...

Eastern Conference Finals: Bruins Bruised, Not Battered

By Kristin Tullo (@K_Tullo) Getty Images Weathered faces and post-season surgeries have become the norm for NHL hockey players. A puck to the nose here, a stick to the face there, get stitched up and back out on the ice they go. Usually it comes down to their feet; if they can still skate, they can still play. In Gregory Campbell’s situation last night, he had one working leg and...
