Campbell broken leg after Malkin shot block

I've never really liked this guy, somewhat because his Dad Colin Campbell is such a d-bag goof of a NHL admin, but Greg Campbell is one tough man. I saw him barely able to stand up and still giving everything he had left after blocking Malkin's shot and the guy is a warrior. :thumb:

He even lined up to block another after breaking his leg (the shot never came as Malkin passed it off)! Mad props to him for sure!

Malkin for the series: 0 goals, 2 - 3 posts, 1 broken opponent's leg

Yeah, mad props to Campbell!

That type of toughness is what makes hockey such a special sport.

If only he had let the shot go into the back of the net. None of this would have happened.

Big :thumb: for Campbell's guts.

But too bad it couldn't have been Marchand blocking the shot.....with his face. :twisted:

My FB profile pic throughout the playoffs was Malkin with this text over it. Little did I know he would actually break a man's leg.
