Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell left Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins with an injury and will not return.

Campbell blocked a slap shot by Evgeni Malkin during a second-period power play, apparently in the midsection, and was clearly injured. He struggled to his feet and managed to help Boston kill the rest of the penalty despite being barely able to move.

The fourth-line forward's efforts drew a standing ovation from the TD Garden crowd, who showered him with chants of “Camp-bell! Camp-bell!” in recognition of his effort.

However, he did not appear on the bench when the Bruins came out for the third period, and Boston said he will not return to the game.
