Why would a person with a broken leg continue to clog shot lanes and try to clear the puck?
A) Because he can't get out of the way. 2) Because it's the Cup.
The Bruins' Gregory Campbell added his name to NHL playoff lore Wednesday night during a 2-1 double-overtime victory over Pittsburgh. The forward blocked a slap shot by Evgeni Malkin during a penalty kill, and the Bruins announced this morning Campbell broke his right fibula on the play.
He continued to limp/hobble/scramble around the Bruins' zone before finally getting to the dressing room amidst a standing ovation.
Boston won the game on a goal by Patrice Bergeron, who got plenty of help from Jaromir Jagr and Brad Marchand. The Bruins have a 3-0 series lead and can advance to the Stanley Cup finals with a win at home Friday.
