Andrei Markov is back on the sidelines tonight.
• UPDATE: Pat Hickey reports that defencemen Andrei Markov, who skated this morning in Kanata, and Tomas Kaberle, still in Toronto following this week’s birth of his child, will not play vs. the Senators tonight, both out with upper-body injuries. Defenceman Alexei Emelin, who missed Wednesday’s Bell Centre game with an upper-body issue, returns to the lineup.
The Canadiens are in Kanata tonight where they will play the Kanatiens … uh, actually the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place, the suburban arena west of the nation’s capital.
The Senators are still in search of the two points they weren’t able to get at the Bell Centre Wednesday night.
