The Canadiens are skating today, but it’s unlikely that the word “bag” is associated with this one unless you’re talking about the freebies some contest winners are holding.
It’s Skate With The Canadiens at the Bell Centre for winners of a team contest. The Habs return to practice ice tomorrow at the Bell Centre, not Brossard, then split the rest of their day between the team’s annual blood-donor clinic and the funeral service for late coach Pat Burns. The week ahead: home Wednesday to Edmonton, in New Jersey on Thursday and home Saturday for a 2 pm matinée against San Jose.
A fun piece sent to us today by our old friend Ben Raby: the Washington Capitals weigh in to pick their winner in today’s 98th Grey Cup game between the Montreal Alouettes and Saskatchewan Roughriders.
