Alex Auld will be betwen the pipes when the Canadiens face the Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre tonight.
Auld, a former goalie with the Panthers, has a lifetime 3-0-4 record against his old team, most recently allowing two goals on 22 shots in Montreal’s 3-2 win in Florida on New Year’s Eve. He was joined at an optional morning skate by Tom Pyatt, Mathieu Darche and Alexandre Picard.
Michael Cammalleri also skated with strength and conditioning coach Pierre Allard.
The dressing room post-skate was even more empty than the Bell Centre rink. Using Malakhov, Kovalev & Latendresse, the specially-trained Habs Inside/Out dog team, Dave Stubbs fought his way through the blizzard and posts pre-game audio above.
