Campbell "likely" to play vs. Panthers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Defenseman Brian Campbell looked and felt much better after Wednesday's morning skate. His injured left foot held up just fine.

So will he play Wednesday against the Florida Panthers?

"There's a good chance," Campbell said. "I feel there's a good shot at it."

Campbell tested out his injury Tuesday at practice, his first with the team in more than a week. He had skated on his own before that, but Tuesday was the first time he felt "good" afterward.

"I felt good," Campbell said. "That was the best part about it. I felt good this morning and all day [Tuesday], even after skating. It's something that hasn't happened before, so it's a good time for hit."

The Hawks certainly need Campbell, who is a plus-28. He's expected to be paired with Chris Campoli.

"I thought he looked really good," coach Joel Quenneville said. "He pushed himself more than he did [Tuesday]. He looks like he's ready to go. He's likely to play."
