Game 5 update: Streit out, Ryder in

Updated at 1:50 p.m. with Julien audio 

Canadiens’ Mark Streit is day-to-day with a hip injury and will yield his place in the lineup tonight to Michael Ryder, who was a healthy scratch in Game 4.

Captain Saku Koivu skated again on his own but will not be back tonight. Nor will Francis Bouillon, though he continues to make slow progress.

The Canadiens skated, sort of, this morning, some players on the ice for 10 minutes or less. For the Bruins, defenceman Aaron Ward (knee) is a game-time decision.

Here’s some audio gathered in the dressing room afterward, and from the press briefings of coaches Guy Carbonneau and Claude Julien.

Ryan O’Byrne, by the way, was the latest customer in Guillaume Latendresse’s barber chair. The result isn’t pretty, something no self-respecting Mohawk would wear.
