Audio: Habs take flight for Washington

AUDIO: Jacques Martin | Scott Gomez | Tomas Plekanec | Michael Cammalleri | Jaroslav Spacek | Roman Hamrlik | Travis Moen

The Canadiens practised officially for about 25 minutes today, though there was some extra defence work before the 11:30 am session and a little additional work afterward, before they chartered out for Washington and tomorrow’s start of the playoffs.

Plenty of audio linked above, including a 14-minute chat with Scott Gomez, Jacques Martin’s coach’s briefing and other clips with various members of the team. Including Tomas Plekanec, who quite rightly still can’t figure what all the fuss was about from yesterday when he matter-of-factly said that the Capitals don’t have Martin Brodeur or Ryan Miller in goal. (This one truly was an issue stirred up by the media, bought into by the Capitals.)

Glen Metropolit travelled with the club to Washington but isn’t ready for an imminent return to action. He’ll be evaluated day to day, Martin said. Metro has been out of action since March 27 with a separated left shoulder, then given a six- to eight-week rehab period before a return. He seems to be well ahead of that, but today he wore a no-contact jersey. Big difference between skating with the team and getting physical.

    Been watching some of the youtube videos from past playoffs. We thrive in the underdog role, except last yr :P. New Team, New Year. Go Habs Go!

    I feel bad for Plecks.

    I saw the interview. He wasn’t trying to take a shot at Theo. He just pointed out that we have an advantage in at least one area and made a comparison to two goaltenders who they’ve had trouble scoring against. He wasn’t trying to be insulting.

    Theodore’s response was childish and stupid.

    I hope Plecky lights him up.

    I agree with you.  Theodore’s response was very childish.  Pleks was just trying to answer a dumbass question and had no intention of slighting Theodore.  But judging by Jose’s response, if the Habs (and Pleky in particular) can get to him early, then even by unintentional means, we are in his head.  I like it.
