Gregory Campbell injured, does not return

Bruins center Gregory Campbell was injured blocking a shot during the second period of Wednesday night’s Game 3 vs. the Pittsburgh Penguins. The team announced after the third period (the game was tied, 1-1, after regulation) that Campbell would not return.

With a little more than seven minutes left in the second period and the Bruins on the penalty kill, Penguins center Evgeni Malkin fired a puck at a diving Campbell, who struggled to stay on his feet after absorbing the blast. The injured Bruin stayed on the ice in that condition for more than a minute while the crowd chanted “Campbell, Campbell” to acknowledge his toughness. It was unclear where the puck hit Campbell, but he appeared to be limping heavily as he went into the tunnel.
