The Boston Bruins will be without one of their top penalty killers for the rest of the playoffs as forward Gregory Campbell will be out of the lineup with a broken right fibula.

Campbell blocked a shot by Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin during a penalty kill in the second period of Boston's 2-1 double overtime win in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference final Wednesday night.

He stayed on the ice for the rest of Pittsburgh's power play before limping to the bench in pain. Campbell was taken to the dressing room right away and didn't return to the game.

"He showed a lot of guts to stay out there," Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after the game. "He's the type of player we appreciate having in the room."

Campbell, 29, has three goals and four assists in the postseason.
