Very quiet morning at the Bell Sports Complex, the Canadiens still basking in the glow of last night’s 5-3 win over the New York Islanders.
Only seven Canadienswere on the ice for a bit of work: goalie Alex Auld, who will get the start on Long Island Friday night, and skaters Andrei Markov, who’ll play his first game of the season against the Florida Panthers at the Bell Centre on Saturday, plus Lars Eller, Mathieu Darche, Alexandre Picard, Ryan O’Byrne and Dustin Boyd.
The rest of the crew worked out in the gym.
The team charters this afternoon to Long Island for tomorrow’s game against the Islanders.
• Carey Price became the first Canadiens goaltender to begin a season with nine starts since Patrick Roy in 1995.
• Islanders send Nino Niederreiter back to the W
