“Never smile at a playoff game, particularly the finals, when you’re in the building,” said Campbell, the league’s senior executive vice-president. “If one of the teams sees you and they’ve lost, most likely in their minds they think you’re laughing at something that happened in the game that happened to them.”
Campbell, however, was happy to ignore that rule for the first time in more than a decade in June. Campbell decided — with the backing of his friends and colleagues — to recuse himself from his usual duties as chief disciplinarian and top video-review man.
His son, Gregory, was playing for the Boston Bruins trying to win the Cup. It was a conflict of interest. But really, what hockey dad could resist cheering for his son at the Cup final?
“It was kind of fun for a change,” said Campbell.
