Happy Birthday Pocket Rocket!

- Born on February 29, 1936, legendary Hall-of-Famer Henri Richard may officially be 76 years young today, but technically, the leap year baby is only ringing in his 19th birthday. Happy Birthday “Pocket Rocket” – party like it’s 1955!

- The Canadiens cancelled practice after their team photo at the Bell Centre on Wednesday afternoon. Only Peter Budaj, Brad Staubitz, Petteri Nokelainen, Max Pacioretty, Andrei Markov, Blake Geoffrion and Scott Gomez skated.

- Carey Price will get his 56th start of the season on Thursday night.
