Empire Takes Inspiration From A Boston Bruin

As Peter Gammons reported, the amazing performance of Bruin Gregory Campbell was an inspiration to those gathered in the New York Yankee 'War Room' during the recent MLB Draft. Their Scouting Director placed the following caption underneath Campbell's picture, "This is the kind of makeup we’re looking for." Campbell suffered a broken leg blocking Evgeni Malkin's slap shot, but continued to finish off his shift during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Pittsburgh. The Bruins will face off against the Blackhawks tonight in Chicago for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals. I'm sorry, but I have to finish writing this now—I think I tweaked my left hammy when I sat down.
