Significant injuries in Boston sports history
After the Bruins miraculous 2013 Game 7 comeback against the Maple Leafs, five game drubbing of the New York Rangers, and two solid wins in Pittsburgh to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Bruins were riding high heading back to Boston looking to shut down the Penguins. Game 3 ended in an overtime victory for the Bs, but it came at a cost to the Bruins: During a penalty kill earlier in the game, Gregory Campbell went to block a shot from Evgeni Malkin and went down in considerable pain. He stayed out for the rest of the shift, however, barely able to move until Shawn Thornton was released from the penalty box to help. Campbell had to be helped off the ice and it was found he had broken his leg and was out for the season, which proved to be a significant injury to the Bruins fourth line and penalty kill in the teams Stanley Cup Final loss to the Blackhawks.
