So a casual inventory of the water bottle lineup on the Habs’ Brossard bench seemed to include the number 76 on a bottle. That would be P.K. Subban’s number.
But closer inspection – ace TSN cameraman Paul Romano trained his lens on it from the second storey of the rink – the bottle was labelled PG, for goaltending coach Pierre Groulx.
Groulx is taking shots at this hour from Mathieu Darche and Ben Maxwell. But they’re headed off now to join the rest of the team in an 11:15 meeting before they all fly to Washington for Friday’s Game 5, trailing the Washington Capitals 3-1.
Defenceman Jaroslav Spacek, who missed Game 4 with a relapse of a recent virus, took a brief spin on the ice but left early.
