NEWARK, N.J. -- Montreal defenseman Chris Campoli said Friday he has been cleared to play and was hoping to be in the lineup Saturday afternoon against the Devils. Canadiens coach Jacques Martin had other ideas, because Campoli is scratched.
I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
