The Canadiens began their Monday with off-ice training.
An appreciative gang of schoolkids lined the glass at the Brossard practice facility as strength and conditioning coach Pierre Allard led the players, wearing shorts and tees, through stretches and exercises.
The team was on the ice at 10:30 and off by 11:15.
• An evacuation alarm sounded at 11:05 a.m. Don’t know whether it’s a bomb scare or Rene Bourque scored. False alarm … in both cases.
* Scott Gomez, Mathieu Darche and Travis Moen are skating in powder-blue/no-contact jerseys.
• Carey Price, Andrei Markov and Josh Gorges have therapy days. Ryan White is sick and Petteri Nokelainen has an upper-body something or other.
