Henrique collided with teammate Steve Bernier and Canadiens defenseman Alexei Emelin behind the Montreal goal late in the first period. Henrique continued to play and took the final shift of the second period but did not return for the third.
The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
