It appears that Christopher Higgins will be back in the lineup tomorrow night when the Phoenix Coyotes visit the Bell Centre. He skated yesterday with Robert Lang and Sergei Kostitsyn but a final determination on his status won’t be made until tomorrrow morning after he meets with the team’s medical and coaching staff.
"He had a good practice and we’ll see how he feels tomorrow morning,’ said coach Guy Carbonneau.
In any case, Guillaume Latendresse will continue to play on a line with Saku Koivu and Alex Tanguay. Latendresse has a goal and four assists in his first four gamees.
Defenceman Francis Bouillon is also awaiting but he’s doubtful for tonight’s game. He and Mathieu Dandenault formed the extra defence pair at practice yesterday. Carey Price will start in goal.
