Gregory Campbell (right leg) knocked out of Game 3
|06.05.13 at 10:51 pm ET|
After going to the ice to block a powerful slap shot from Evgeni Malkin on a power play in the second period, Gregory Campbell, the center of the “Merlot” line will not be returning.
Campbell stayed on the ice for over 30 seconds of the penalty kill and hobbled off on his left leg while unable to put any pressure on his right leg. He was pushed slightly by an official, who helped him to the bench as the crowd chanted, “Campbell, Campbell, Campbell.”
The Bruins announced before overtime that Campbell would not be returning.
Campbell played just 10 shifts and 6:51 of Game 3 before taking the shot from Malkin. His line of Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille was on the ice to start the game.
