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

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

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.
