After a super Super Bowl weekend for the Canadiens – with wins over Buffalo and Ottawa – coach Michel Therrien gave his team a well-deserved day off on Monday.
With a 6-2-0 record through the weekend, the Canadiens sat in fourth place in the Eastern Conference standings but were only one point behind the first-place Boston Bruins (6-1-1), who will be the visitors at the Bell Centre on Wednesday night (7:30 p.m., TSN, RDS, TSN 690 Radio).
After eight games last season, the Canadiens had a 1-5-2 record.
After Wednesday’s game, the Canadiens travel to Buffalo to face the Sabres on Thursday night and they play host to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
The Canadiens will practice at 11 a.m. Tuesday in Brossard.
If you missed the RDS premiere of the new 24CH docu-reality series, the English version will be shown tonight at 8 p.m. on TSN.
Here are links to some stories to keep you busy as we wait for the puck to drop Wednesday night:
