Before boarding an early-afternoon charter flight to Buffalo, the Canadiens held a light practice in Brossard.
Among the regulars absent due to “therapy day” were Erik Cole, P.K. Subban, Hal Gill and Josh Gorges.
Coach Randy Cunneyworth said the Canadiens are in “playoff mode, where the ante is up 10-fold.”
“We have to battle hard each and every shift,” Cunneyworth added. “The one shift you take off could be the difference in the game.”
