Rookie defenseman Steve Kampfer was sent to the hospital with a broken nose after being bloodied by teammate Zdeno Chara 57 seconds into the second period.
"He went to the hospital and has a broken nose," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "They are just checking him out. We're going to find out more and the severity of it [Sunday]."
Meanwhile, Marc Savard took a header into the far boards in the third period, after a hit from Pittsburgh's Deryk Engelland but after spending about a minute on the ice, he got to his knees and skated off on his own power. "From what I'm told, there was nothing wrong. It was a clean hit," Julien said. "He was off-balance, got his bell rung a little bit but he's alright."

While his teammate Nick Mangold took to Twitter to get a shot in at Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and his foot metaphors, Jets linebacker Bart Scott took things one step further, telling Newsday that Welker needs to be “very careful” about what he says about New York coach Rex Ryan.
“I’ll tell you what,” Scott told Newsday. “Be very careful what you say about our coach. [Welker’s] days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that.”
Scott’s words come two days after Welker appeared to engage in some good-natured wordplay at the expense of Ryan, using 11 foot metaphors in a roughly eight-minute press conference. Mangold answered with a Friday night Tweet directed at Welker that indirectly hinted at the 2007 Spygate scandal that hit the Patriots.
The Scott statement drew the attention of the league, as NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted on Saturday that the NFL’...
