Canadiens goalie Carey Price loses the caterpillar atop his upper lip before midnight, his work for Movember in support of prostate cancer awareness done. So much for superstition…
Price won this month’s Molson Cup as the Canadiens’ player of the month based on three-star selections. No big surprise there for the man who will start in goal tomorrow night at the Bell Centre against the Edmonton Oilers.
A remarkably uneventful practice in Brossard today, save for the return from two so-called therapy days for defenceman Josh Gorges.
Tomorrow will be the 800th NHL game for defenceman Jaroslav Spacek, who categorically refused to speak today to RDS reporter Renaud Lavoie because Lavoie, unaware that he was working today, had shaved off his mustache one day early. Seriously.
A Spacek video coming in a short while, along with audio of coach Jacques Martin’s news briefing. The coach expressed no untoward concern about his team not filling the opposition net. He also denied that that he’s got a deal with La Cage aux Sports to keep Habs scoring to four goals or less, hence not offering fans free chicken wings.
