MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens coach Michel Therrien was asked about a few of his players Tuesday, but there was just one he didn't particularly want to talk about.
With the Canadiens taking a day off before preparing to play Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS), Therrien held a conference call with reporters to discuss being down 2-0 in the best-of-7 series heading on the road.
He was asked at one point about forward Max Pacioretty, and Therrien spoke of how he has matured into a young leader who has been given greater responsibility and thrived.
He was asked about forward Alex Galchenyuk, who Therrien praised for his ability to adapt to the pace of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in a 3-1 loss in Game 2 after missing six weeks with a knee injury.
He was also asked about forward Thomas Vanek, and that's when Therrien suddenly decided he didn't want to discuss individual players.
