FILE - In this Wednesday, June 5, 2013, file photo, Boston Bruins center Gregory Campbell (11) dives to the ice to block the puck with his body on a shot by Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin (not shown) as Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference (21) and Penguins left wing James Neal (18) watch during the second period in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals in the NHL hockey Stanley Cup playoffs in Boston. Shot-blocking is still an essential part of playoff hockey, though the risk-reward value of the time-honored tradition is being questioned like never before. Campbell could barely skate on the broken leg he got on the play, but finishing his shift during the Bruins’ run made him into a cult phenomenon in a sport that glorifies taking frozen rubber off whatever part of your body you choose, as long as you keep it out of the net.
