Nothing wild and crazy out of this morning’s practice at the Bell Centre, with coach Guy Carbonneau announcing that Jaroslav Halak will get the start in goal tomorrow in Columbus vs. the Blue Jackets and Carey Price will start Saturday in Toronto vs. the Maple Leafs.
The lines offered no surprises, based on the practices of this week:
Andrei Kostitsyn-Tomas Plekanec-Alex Kovalev
Chris Higgins-Saku Koivu-Alex Tanguay
Guillaume Latendresse-Robert Lang-Sergei Kostitsyn
Tom Kostopoulos, Maxim Lapierre, Steve Bégin and Georges Laraque practised in light blue fourth-line jerseys, with Carbonneau saying he’d yet to decide the makeup of that line for Thursday’s game.
More to come later this afternoon, with audio from the dressing room.
