Steven Kampfer Ready to Help Providence Win, Preparing for Playoffs If Called Back to Boston

Steven Kampfer Ready to Help Providence Win, Preparing for Playoffs If Called Back to Boston This weekend, things will be a little different for defenseman Steven Kampfer.

Sporting his new shaved head, as part of Cuts for a Cause, the "part-time" Bruins defenseman will find himself in familiar territory back in Providence, but his time with the P-Bruins will be short-lived.

Kampfer told Adam Kaufman that he was surprised to hear he was heading back down to Rhode Island, but the coaches agreed it would be best for the defenseman to get in some playing time in case they need him to jump back in with the big club come playoff time.

"I wasn't expecting to come down," he said. "I'm just going to get some games in and be ready for playoffs up there. In case somebody gets hurt, I'm ready to go."

Kampfer added that he will prepare for the games in Providence like they are games with Boston, saying that he wanted to help the team end the season in a winning fashion.

"I think you gotta prepare like you're gonna play up there," he said. "We're gonna do our best to get six points this weekend."

As far as playoff predictions are concerned, Kampfer thinks the Bruins have what it takes to win the Stanley Cup.

"We expect to go all the way," he said. "We have the personnel, we have everyone that can do the job. We struggled the past couple games, didn't play our style. Youre gonna see that determined hockey club that's there that wants to play."
