Kaspars Daugavins in lineup for Bruins in place of Gregory Campbell, sidelined with broken leg

BOSTON - Kaspars Daugavins is replacing injured forward Gregory Campbell for the Boston Bruins on Friday night in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Campbell, the Bruins' fourth-line centre, broke his right leg in the second period of Boston's double-overtime win in Game 3 on Wednesday night. He is out for the rest of the playoffs.

Daugavins played in just one of Boston's first 15 post-season games this year.

Boston claimed Daugavins off waivers from the Ottawa Senators on March 27. He had no goals and one assist in six regular-season games with the Bruins after posting one goal and two assists in 19 games with the Senators.

Campbell had three goals and four assists in 15 playoff games.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
