That’s the philosophy guiding the Canadiens as they prepare for a visit from the New York Islanders Wednesday night. Coach Jacques Martin will stick with the same lineup which has won the past two games. That means Carey Price makes his ninth consecutive start in goal and forward Dustin Boyd and defenceman Ryan O’Byrne will be healthy scratches.
The Canadiens practiced at the Bell Centre today after gathering for a team picture. It was a light-hearted workout which wrapped up with a shootout competition.
Jacques Martin’s press conference is worth a listen. The coach has a dry sense of humour and was in good form today.
