Kelly out indefinitely with broken tibia

BOSTON -- Bruins forward Chris Kelly is out indefinitely with a broken left tibia, the team announced Wednesday afternoon.

Kelly suffered the injury when he collided with the Ottawa Senators’ Chris Neil in the second period of Monday’s 3-2 shootout win at Ottawa.

In 23 games this season, Kelly has two goals and four assists for six points. Veteran forward Jay Pandolfo replaced Kelly in the Bruins’ lineup on Tuesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This is the first major injury a Bruins player has suffered this season.
