Audio from the Canadiens gathered after today’s morning skate at the Bell Centre, a few hours before the Habs take on the Philadelphia Flyers:
Michael Ryder on his need to shoot more, and how the Canadiens’ speed could neutralize the Flyers’ physical game. Clip runs 2:00.
Christopher Higgins on the rude welcome awaiting Flyers’ Daniel Brière, and how the Canadiens should do some banging of their own. Clip runs 3:44.
Bryan Smolinski on the Canadiens’ long-established rivalry with the Flyers, of which he’s about to get his first taste. Clip runs 2:38.
Head coach Guy Carbonneau talks about the game ahead. Clip runs 2:26.
And Philadelphia goalie Martin Biron on the 48th anniversary of Jacques Plante introducing the mask to the NHL, on playing with Daniel Brière and the big, bad Flyers, and being his team’s No. 1 goalie. Clip runs 6:47.
Meanwhile, RDS’s Luc Gélinas is reporting that the Canadiens have told Kyle Chipchura, Mikhail Grabovski and Carey Price that they can go apartment-hunting in Montreal, the time-honoured sign that they are staying with the Habs this season.
