Halfway through the second period of Game 3, the Bruins lost Gregory Campbell to an injured right leg.

The fourth-line center was injured while killing off a too many men penalty. On the play, Campbell was marking Evgeni Malkin at the point. Malkin teed up a slap shot that clanged into Campbell’s right leg.

The shot caused Campbell to buckle and lose one of his gloves. Play continued, however, which prevented Campbell from retreating to the bench. A one-legged Campbell had to stay on the ice for approximately 50 seconds while the Bruins killed the penalty. When the Bruins finally cleared the puck, Campbell made it to the bench. He immediately limped down the tunnel with help from physical therapist Scott Waugh. Campbell didn’t return.
