Following Tuesday’s 6-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens held an optional practice Wednesday morning in Brossard with Douglas Murray, Michael Bournival, George Parros, Ryan White, Travis Moen and goalies Carey Price and Peter Budaj the only players to take part.
The Canadiens are also holding their annual blood-donor clinic Wednesday from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Bell Centre.
Max Pacioretty, who had a hat-trick in the win over the Wild, celebrated his 25th birthday on Wednesday.
The Canadiens are back in action Friday night when they visit the Washington Capitals and Alex Ovechkin and then return home to face Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday night at the Bell Centre. Both games are 7 p.m. starts.
