WILMINGTON, Mass. — Zdeno Chara said after Bruins practice today that he is unlikely to play Tuesday against Los Angeles, but beyond that he’s just day-to-day.
The captain isn’t the only injured Bruins player to worry about, though.
Gregory Campbell was injured blocking a shot Saturday night, according to head coach Claude Julien. Campbell didn’t practice today and was in a walking boot when he showed up at Ristuccia Arena for treatment.
If Campbell can’t play, the Bruins could re-insert Daniel Paille, who returned to practice today after doctors feared he suffered a concussion last Thursday. If Paille, who is day-to-day, can’t come back, the Bruins would need to make a call-up.
Steven Kampfer projects as Chara’s lineup replacement. Boston’s captain said he’s felt better over the two days since he was injured Saturday in Columbus.
