The Canadiens return to practice in Brossard this morning following last night’s too-close 5-4 shootout win over the lowly but very game Edmonton Oilers. The Habs are scheduled to hit the ice at 11:30 a.m. in a practice that, as usual, is open to the public.
The Boston Bruins, meanwhile, will hold a practice of their own at 1 p.m. at the downtown Bell Centre; that’s not open to the public.
Locked in a playoff-berth battle, the Canadiens play host to the Bruins tomorrow night.
Questions surely to be asked of head coach Jacques Martin today: Who gets the start in goal (he surely won’t answer that until tomorrow), and where does centreman Maxim Lapierre, returning tomorrow following a four-game suspension, fit into a lineup that has now won four straight games and seeks a season-high five against the Bruins?
As our spiritual leader Red Fisher might say: Stay tuned.
