During Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, Gregory Campbell sacrificed his body during a penalty kill to stop Evgeni Malkin’s slap shot. After taking the full force of the slap shot, he was down on the ice for several seconds, but heroically brought himself to his feet, and with only one working now, finished his shift to complete the penalty kill.
Campbell was an obvious pain and immediately went to the locker room after his shift. He was seen on crutches after the game Claude Julien noted after the game it was a serious injury: “right now, it doesn’t look good.”
ESPN is now reporting he’s suffered a broken leg: “Gregory Campbell suffered a broken right leg and is done for the season,” according to their team source.
