The Canadiens practice this morning in Brossard, then board a charter flight this afternoon to Buffalo where they take on the Sabres Friday night.
Back home to play the Toronto Maple Leafs in a Saturday night special, then it’s on the road for the longest trip of the season: Calgary, Edmonton, Colorado and Vancouver, with a brief pitstop back in Montreal before setting off to face Washington and Pittsburgh.
Lines on the ice now:
Plekanec between Kovalev and Andrei K
Koivu between Higgins and D’Agostini
Lapierre between Pacioretty and Sergei K
Bégin between Kostopoulos and Laraque/Dandenault
No Brisebois, at least for now.
