We have our own tough rugby players…Buck Shelford reputedly playing with a testicle torn open, he also decked out a Frog in the 1987 World Cup final. Colin Meads finished a game with a broken arm. Kevin Skinner – knocked out 2 Springbok props in 1 game…all tough guys.
But could they do the same with a broken leg.
Boston Bruins center Gregory Campbell delivered by far the most heroic performance in Wednesday night’s double-overtime thriller.
According to NHLPA.com’s Catherine Faas, Campbell remained on the ice for almost a minute after breaking his right fibula during a penalty kill in the second period of Game 3 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The injury occurred when Campbell laid out to block a slap shot from Pens star Evgeni Malkin.
The video shows that Campbell was badly shaken up, remaining on the ice for a moment before getting back to his feet to help kill the Pittsburgh power play.
