Bruins practice without Kampfer, Bergeron

WILMINGTON — The Bruins are on the ice for practice at Ristuccia Arena. Missing are defensemen Steve Kampfer, who left last night’s game after taking a hit in the second period and Andrew Ference, and center Patrice Bergeron.

Updates: Kampfer was diagnosed with a mild concussion and will be out for at least a week, according to the medical protocol.

Coach Claude Julien said he expected a defenseman to be called up from Providence later today, but he did not know which one.

Bergeron is out of town for personal reasons. He will not play tomorrow against the Penguins for the same reason.

Julien said he expected Andrew Ference (lower body injury) to begin skating again Sunday.

Julien also said he expected to use today’s practice line combinations against the Penguins — at least to start.
