Audio/update: Practice begins for pumped Habs

Audio:  • Gainey  • Komisarek  • Higgins  • Kostopoulos  • Laraque

Feisty Habs revel in underdog role: Stubbs
Laraque, and everyone else, expects bruising series: Hickey

No major surprises on the ice in Brossard this morning/afternoon.

No sighting of Andrei Markov, but there were suggestions from Bob Gainey that we might see him on ice this week.

Francis Bouillon skated before the practice began. See our other item updating the health of Bouillon and Robert Lang.

Lines that were dressed for the two-part practice – 50 minutes of drills, an ice resurfacing then another 45 minutes:

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

Seven defencemen were dressed, Brisebois seemingly the odd man out. O’Byrne, Stewart and Sergei Kostitsyn were dressed in the burgundy press-box jerseys.
