Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly has a broken left tibia and is out indefinitely, general manager Peter Chiarelli said in a statement Wednesday.
Kelly was injured during the second period Monday night in a game against the Ottawa Senators on a hit by Chris Neil. Kelly has two goals and six points in 23 games for the Bruins this season, and has been a consistent regular on the team's third line since arriving before the trade deadline in 2011.
You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
