BOSTON Steve Kampfer has practiced with the team for roughly a week without limitations, and is getting closer to potentially joining the Bruins lineup if and when an opportunity arises. Kampfer is still working on his conditioning after missing a month with a knee injury, and the time is still not quite here for the 22-year-old to potentially supplant any struggling Bs blueliners.Hes still working on his conditioning, but hes certainly getting close, said Julien.Claude Julien sounds like a man thats going to ride things out with Tomas Kaberle despite the struggles that have really hampered the big trade acquisition from almost immediately following his first game as a Bruin against the Ottawa Senators.His turnover in front of the net that led to a Teddy Purcell goal was exactly the kind of soft defensive play that can bury a hockey team during the playoffs, and his coach knows he needs to turn things around.I expect Kaberle to play better tonight, Julien said. We talked about it and I think hes committed to playing better. As a coach and as a team you support, and you expect your players to answer the call. We believe in him. So thats what we expect out of Tomasto be a good player for us.If Kaberle doesnt start being a good player for the Bs soon, perhaps Kampfer will be healthy enough to push him as competition provided Bostons season isnt already over by then.
