The Canadiens did some off-ice training: kicking around a soccer ball, jogging, some stretches.
Then about seven of them skated around fort a while.
The party line, post-practice: It ain’t over till it’s over.
Andrei Markov will accompany the Canadiens on their upcoming road trip to Washington and Florida. He still hasn’t been cleared for contact, but Markov may skate with his teammates.
Randy Cunneyworth says Petteri Nokelainen is the closest to a return to action. That means Travis Moen is still out, with the trade deadline looming.
Erik Cole is banged up but playing, and Louis Leblanc has the flu.
