Campbell blocked a shot by Evgeni Malkin with his midsection on a power play late in the second period. He remained on the ice for a few seconds before struggling to his feet, then limped around for more than 30 seconds. Now it turns out he broke his right fibula on the play, the Bruins confirmed on Thursday morning, but stayed on the ice so Boston could clear the zone.
This sums it up: Leafs goaltender James Reimer laid face-down on the ice for minutes after Patrice Bergeron scored for the Bruins in overtime — capping an amazing comeback after Toronto held a 4-1 lead in the third period. (Photo: Charles Krupa/The Associated Press)
“It was extremely emotional. I was definitely fighting back tears,” Bruins forward Brad Marchand said. “It’s something that we’ll never forget. For everyone to show their respect and obviously give their thoughts and prayers for everyone, it’s great that everyone is kind of coming together at this time and helping each other out.” (Photos: Jim Rogash/Getty Images; Jimmy Golen/The Associated Press)
Tim Thomas refuses to visit White House U.S. President Barack Obama hosted the Boston Bruins at the White House on Monday afternoon to celebrate their 2011 Stanley Cup victory, but veteran goaltender Tim Thomas declined to attend for political reasons, according to Sports Illustrated.
“I can require someone to attend a team event. If they don’t, I can suspend him,” Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe. “I’m not suspending Tim. Whatever his position is, it isn’t reflective of the Boston Bruins nor my own. But I’m not suspending him.” Photo: Jewel Samad/AFP/Getty Images
Going, going, gone Well, uh, that was kind of weird. One minute, Canadiens forward Mike Cammalleri is playing against the Bruins in Boston. The next, he’s in a cab to the hotel during the third period because he was traded mid-game. Yes, that actually happened. Photo: Elsa/Getty Images
Hitting the spot From bullied to bully. After getting manhandled last week in back-to-back losses to the Boston Bruins, in which they were outscored 10-4, Jay Rosehill and the Toronto Maple Leafs travelled to Manhattan and got to kick a little sand in the face of the New York Rangers in a 4-2 win on Monday night.

Maple Leafs must learn from Boston blowout After the Toronto Maple Leafs lost 7-0 to the Boston Bruins on Saturday, the easy thing to say was that the mirage has finally been revealed. That after roaring out of the gates on a Cinderella-type 9-3-1 run, the team that the rest of the country loves to hate had turned back into a pumpkin. That it was all a sham.
For those who had been skeptical of the Leafs’ early season success, that might be the thinking. The Bruins did not just beat Toronto on Saturday, according to Leafs forward Joffrey Lupul, “they kicked our ass every which way.”
So does this mean the curtain has been lifted to reveal the Leafs of past years? Should one bad night of hockey erase four weeks of good? (Photo: Abelimages/Getty Images)
Photos: Riots, fire, destruction after Vancouver’s loss From Brian Hutchinson: Blood in our streets. I saw people on the ground, bleeding. Shattered glass everywhere. Police cars set alight. Major bridges are now closed, preventing public access into the downtown core. Transit is plugged up, there’s no way out. More police and fire crews are arriving, from the suburbs, but again, it seems too late. And as I write this, the sun has just set. Vancouver, what a disgrace
Canucks barely register a pulse in Boston The Canucks looked like a team that had a loss to give, that could afford a defeat and still have a Game 7 at home to fix the damage. And maybe they can, but it’s going to be some trick, if they manage it.
Outscored 17-3 in the three games in Boston — not even really competitive other than the first periods of Games 3 and 4, and in garbage time once the Bruins had their 4-0 lead Monday — can any team survive three spankings as thorough as Boston laid on the Canucks at TD Garden?
