Practice - April 23

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

- After dropping a 1-0 decision to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night, the Canadiens held an optional practice at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard on Thursday afternoon. Michel Therrien’s troops lead their best-of-seven Eastern Conference Quarterfinals series 3-1. Game 5 will be played on Friday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

- Daniel Carr, Christian Thomas and Mike Condon, all of whom were recalled from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs on Sunday, took part in Thursday’s on-ice session on the South Shore. They were among 14 players to hit the ice in preparation for Game 5.

- During his post-practice press conference, Therrien mentioned that he's been satisfied with his lineup as of late, suggesting that the Canadiens could field the same lineup for Game 5 that took to the ice for Game 4.

- Greg Pateryn, who left the ice during the third period on Wednesday night after colliding with Andrei Markov, was back at practice on Thursday. Pateryn sported a few stitches above his eye, but indicated that he'd be good to go for Game 5.
