Bruins fourth-line C Gregory Campbell to miss rest of playoffs with broken leg

BOSTON - Boston Bruins centre Gregory Campbell will miss the rest of the NHL playoffs with a broken right leg.

General manager Peter Chiarelli made the announcement Thursday.

Campbell was hurt during the second period of the Bruins 2-1, double-overtime victory Wednesday night that gave them a 3-0 lead over Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 4 is Friday night.

During a Penguins power play, Campbell fell in the right faceoff circle with about eight minutes left. He got up and dove in the high slot to try and block Evgeni Malkin's shot. He kept playing for about a minute before reaching his bench. He didn't return.

In 15 playoff games this year, Campbell has three goals and four assists as part of a strong fourth line.

Quote of the Day

This team has been a real treat to say you've been the head coach of them. I'm extremely proud of this group ... after the disappointment of (the Game 6 loss) is digested, it's always a lot easier as a coach when your team has emptied its tank, and that team emptied its tank for me for three months.

— Senators coach Dave Cameron after getting eliminated in the first round by the Canadiens
