As much as we all hate the Bruins and their players, Gregory Campbell achieved legend status last night for his penalty kill. He blocked a shot, a shot which broke his fibula, and he continued to play for 45 more seconds before leaving the ice!

This guy has one hell of a heart, hate him or not, he earned my respect.

Yup just like Horton had a life threatining concussion in 2011... Bruins are master spinners to make themselves look good. At best it was probably a hairline fracture and when adrenaline is going most people could have done that too. He is no legend other than having the son of Colin Campbell on your team improves your odds of winning considerably.

Are you kidding me?
Get over that series man.

I'd like to see you break a leg and then have the energy and strength to continue playing for over 45 seconds.

Hate him with a passion, but that's pretty incredible!

The reason I love Kesler so much is how he can play with broken bones. That takes a lot of heart!

Wow 45 seconds... amazing why don't you put his poster up on your wall and you can stare at it in your special alone time. Just cause you feel funny feelings looking a greg campbell doesn't mean everyone else does.

That hit wasn't dirty, Rome shouldn't have been suspended.

As for Campbell, kid has gained a lot of respect from me, that's gotta hurt.

It's tuff to break a bone but it's doable to skate on if it's only a hairline fracture. That bone is more of a stabalzing bone than weight supporting. I think it's the same one that Terrell Owens completely broke and played on weeks later in the Superbowl.

Still, that deserves some respect. Breaking leg bones hurts ... badly, unfortunately I know that oh too well from several experiences.

Aladeen does have a point about the way Boston spins their stories though.

I hate every Boston player, but that shows a true warrior in Campbell. Kid's got heart, thats how badly players want the cup, they will play with one leg if hey really have to.

He earned my respect as well

I wonder if anything happened to Krejci on his shot block.

Though I think Aladeen's overreacting, I have to agree with him. Broken fibula doesn't seriously impede your locomotion like a broken tibia might, and once that adrenaline is pumping you can keep going for a while. Not that I'm disrespecting Campbell's effort or anything.

Regardless, fighting through pain and an injury to not let your team down, does raise respect.

Maybe something Marchand could learn about.

His father is loathsome, but that's not his fault. He plays with a lot of courage, and he really ties that fourth line together. Will be interesting to see how much this hurts the bruins, he's a great penalty killer.

Good on him.

The rest of his team would have just laid on the ice waiting for a whistle even for much lesser injuries.

I would be pleased as punch if you pressed this green button.

I've broken both fibulas and tibias in my legs in 4 separate incidents and the differences were night and day.

Both times I broke the fibula, I could walk after, one for over a week before I got the cast on (Thank you Shaughnessy Hospital for Xraying the wrong part of my leg)

Both times I broke the tibia, I was fracked. One of the times I was in the hospital for 3 days waiting for the swelling to go down so they could put a cast on. It was a way longer rehab for the tibia as well because I couldn't use a walking cast.

I'd say the fact that you know that a bottom 6 player on the Boston Bruins is married points more to YOU having a man crush on the dude.

Crazy. And I bet if Letang had taken a shot from the point, Campbell probably would have blocked it too.

Pretty unreal what hockey players put themselves through for the sake of the team. Any player in any sport who dives, embellishes, or fakes injuries should be ashamed of their antics when they watch something like this.

Maybe not, but I don't think anyone would doubt that Marchand would just lie there like a crying baby, so the fact that he continued to try to play is commendable.

Finally, someone who actually plays!

Having broken both my fibula and tibia while on the ice, I can safely say Boston is doing a bang up job of playing up an injury that sounds worse than it is. I seriously doubt blocking a shot would break a fibula anyhow unless Campbell has chicken bones so it's probably a hairline fracture. Only way I've seen anyone manage to break either of those bones is by having their leg sat on like what happened to Booth.

For the supposedly toughest team in the NHL, they sure do act like absolute wusses a lot.

Hey Aladeen, how bout we play a pick up game on ice and i break your leg and see how long you last before crying and begging to go to the hospital?

Perspectives buddy. It was awesome what Campbell was able to do. Obviously he's not a hero, and TOML's post was quite obviously sarcastic.
