Daugavins in, Campbell out for Game 4

Daugavins in, Campbell out for Game 4

Life without Gregory Campbell starts tonight as Kaspars Daugavins will replace “Soupy” in the Bruins lineup.

Campbell is out for the remainder of the playoffs with a broken right leg after diving in front of an Evgeni Malkin slap-shot in which he then stayed on the ice for the remaining 45 seconds to kill off a Penguins power-play.

Daugavins has been inserted on to the third line alongside Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley as Chris Kelly centers the fourth line alongside Shawn Thornton and Daniel Paille.

Head Coach Claude Julien was short and simple on the lineup change for Friday night’s Game 4 with the Penguins.

“He needs to step up and do his job,” Julien said of Daugavins. “He’s a gritty player, strong on the puck, strong individual and strong on his skates.”

Daugavins can’t wait to get back on the ice for the B’s in Game 4.

“I’m ready and excited for an opportunity if I get one,” he said. “It’s way tougher to watch than to play.”

Daugavins hasn’t played since tallying 9:52 of ice time in Game 1 versus the Maple Leafs.

If you hear a barking noise coming from Daugavins, it means he has contributed in a good way. Hopefully for Bruins fans, he can be an asset for the Black and Gold as they look to sweep away the Penguins.
