Video: Gregory Campbell Breaks Leg, Continues Playing For 40 More Seconds

(WSCR) There’s a reason why hockey players have a reputation for being tough.

It’s because they are.

And Boston Bruin fourth-line forward Gregory Campbell is absolutely no exception.

During Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Boston last night, Campbell suffered a broken right fibula after blocking a shot on a Pittsburgh Penguins power play.

A mere broken bone wasn’t going to stop Campbell, though, as he struggled to get to his feet and continued to kill the power play for another 40-plus seconds.


Check out the video of Campbell’s struggle to stay in the game below.
