Gregory Campbell: Playing Thursday a ‘realistic possibility’

Good news on the Gregory Campbell [1] front, as the veteran center didn’t seemed bothered at all Wednesday in a training camp session packed with battle drills. Asked how he felt after the contact-heavy skate, Campbell said he is continuing to improve “day by day.”

It would appear that Campbell is both in game shape and physically capable to play in games after returning from a broken leg suffered in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins [2]. With the Red Wings in town Thursday, Campbell said that the idea of him making his preseason debut in the game is a “realistic possibility.”

To this point, Campbell, Patrice Bergeron [3] and Zdeno Chara [4] have been held out of games.
