So if you had big money on Team C in the Canadiens’ Sunday scrimmage… you’re laughing now.

Andreas Engqvist scored the winner with 40 or so seconds left on the clock in Brossard, giving C a 5-4 win over Team A before a standing-room-only crowd at the Bell Sports Complex.

Mathieu Darche scored twice for the winners, while Alex Henry and an impressive Brendan Gallagher had singles. Alexander Avtsin, Alain Berger, Tomas Plekanec and Erik Cole had goals for the losing squad.

Gallagher was especially impressive today, far from the biggest man on the ice but one noticed for his shifty moves and large heart.

P.K. Subban and Ryan White, nursing minor injuries, did not take part in the scrimmage for their respective teams.

The first cuts come Monday after the final scrimmage in Brossard.

Give a listen to Jacques Martin’s media briefing, as linked above. The head coach is especially good talking about the four phases of his team’s camp, what the expectations are and how individual attention is paid to players in such a large camp.
