Campbell skates; game status uncertain
By Joe McDonald
BOSTON -- Bruins forward Gregory Campbell (fractured left foot) is still uncertain whether he’ll be in the lineup against the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night at TD Garden.
Campbell has missed the last three games after he suffered the foot injury during a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Dec. 10. He practiced on Sunday and participated in the optional morning skate on Monday.
“It felt better than yesterday, so we’ll see how it goes,” Campbell said.
The Bruins are 3-0 during his absence with wins over the Kings, Senators and Flyers.
“It’s not fun,” he said of not playing. “The silver lining is our team is playing extremely well, so it’s fun to watch us win. It’s not fun not to be a part of it. I want to be involved in the success of the team.”
If he does play, Campbell will add protective padding to his skate.
