The Canadiens had a team meeting this morning in Brossard and then had what Tomas Plekanec described as a welcome day away from the ice. Plekanec noted that several players are battling colds and needed both a mental and physical break.
Two players did take advantage of the ice. Jeff Halpern skated for about 15 minutes while Travis Moen went on the ice to break in a new pair of skates.
And RDS reports Mike Cammalleri has strep throat – and denies idiotic rumour he’d asked to be traded.
