Morning-skate audio gathered as the Canadiens prepared for tonight’s Bell Centre game against the Boston Bruins:
Forward Christopher Higgins on home ice and being reunited tonight with Saku Koivu and Michael Ryder. Clip runs 1:18.
Forward Michael Ryder on his new, old linemates and their bid to recapture the chemistry they once had as a trio. Clip runs 2:26.
Defenceman Patrice Brisebois on his injury, an MRI on Monday having revealed two fractured bones in his left foot. The veteran says he’s willing to simply bite the bullet and play through the considerable pain – there was obvious swelling when he took off his skate – and adds he’ll be ready to suit up should coach Guy Carbonneau look his way. Clip runs 6:57.
