Canadiens coach Michel Therrien confirmed at practice Friday that Ryan White will miss Saturday’s game against the Buffalo Sabres at the Bell Centre (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690) because of a lower-body injury.
Michael Blunden has been recalled from the Hamilton Bulldogs to take White’s place.
Friday’s practice in Brossard was optional, with only nine players skating: Travis Moen, Gabriel Dumont, P.K. Subban, Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Kaberle, Brendan Gallagher, Yannick Weber, Jarred Tinordi and Peter Budaj.
Rene Bourque, still recovering from a concussion, isn’t expected to play Saturday, while Carey Price will start again in net.
