Bruins expect either Steven Kampfer or Andrew Ference to return to lineup Tuesday

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters after Monday’s practice at Ristuccia Arena that injured defensemen Andrew Ference, Steven Kampfer and Shane Hnidy will travel with the team to Columbus for Tuesday night’s tilt with the Blue Jackets. While Julien noted that Hnidy is still unavailable, either Kampfer (concussion) or Ference (lower body) could suit up on Tuesday.
“We feel that one of them, at least, will be ready, and hopefully two,” Julien said of Kampfer and Ference. The coach added that, “there isn’t any definite decision that’s been made on either of those two players.”
Both Kampfer and Ference have skated with the Bruins the last two days. Kampfer has been out since suffering a concussion on a hit from Mattias Ritola on March 3. Ference has not played since Feb. 26.
