Canadiens forward Michael Cammalleri and defenceman Brent Sopel took therapy days, not skating at Brossard practice on a rotten Montreal winter’s day.
Questioned about their status for tomorrow’s game vs. the Boston Bruins, head coach Jacques Martin waffled a little, not coming right out and saying both are fine and would be available. Audio to come on that soon.
Most of the Habs were on the indoor soccer field a few ticks past 10 am, the practice schedule putting all but Cammalleri, Sopel and Mathieu Darche on the Brossard rink.
Renaud Lavoie of RDS reported that Darche, said to be rehabbing a groin injury, was back on the ice for the first time in 20 days, well before the team. Darche wasn’t on the rink by the time we arrived at 10 am, but the blue line was heavily scratched. Whoever had skated wasn’t using the whole rink.
