Quiet day in Brossard today, no changes in jerseys this morning at practice. But there was plenty of communication on ice, Bob Gainey holding a couple of group and individual meetings. In one group gathering, Gainey and Alex Tanguay had a lengthy discussion, everyone else listening in, and the two soon were at the side of the rink as practice resumed, reviewing things on a diagram board.

Gainey did not meet the media today, but will tomorrow before the team boards its charter to Boston in advance of Thursday’s Game 1. Lines as dressed today:

Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev
Kostitsyn-Plekanec-D’Agostini
Latendresse-Lapierre-Kostopoulos
Higgins-Metropolit-Laraque 

O’Byrne, Stewart and Sergei Kostitsyn were in extras jerseys, as they were Monday. Brisebois likely the seventh defenceman.
