Sergei Kostitsyn will not make today’s charter flight to Philadelphia, nursing a lower body injury that coach Jacques Martin says leaves him day-to-day. Kostitsyn seemed to be favouring his right ankle last night during the loss to Carolina before leaving the contest early.
Martin said today that goaltending is not his problem, but he wouldn’t criticize the fans who booed Carey Price when he was announced as third star of the Wednesday game, a 2-1 loss. Fans pay good dollar for their entertainment, Martin said, and are entitled to their opinion.
The Canadiens held an 11:30 a.m. practice in Brossard before chartering to Philadelphia this afternoon for their Good Friday match against the Flyers. Then it’s right back home to play host to the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
