by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

- After a day off on Wednesday, the Canadiens were back at practice at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard on Thursday morning. Michel Therrien’s troops won’t be in action until Saturday night, though, when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Air Canada Centre.

- Prior to the start of practice, goaltender Carey Price hit the ice with head athletic therapist Graham Rynbend to continue rehabbing his lower-body injury. Once again, Price wasn’t sporting any of his equipment.

- Paul Byron and Nathan Beaulieu didn’t practice on Thursday due to injury. Jacob De La Rose, meanwhile, didn’t suit up because of the flu. Andrei Markov, meanwhile, was given the day off from practice.

- General manager Marc Bergevin addressed the media following the on-ice session. He confirmed his complete confidence in Therrien and his staff, indicating that they will all remain in place for the remainder of the season regardless of the Canadiens’ record. Bergevin also indicated that he addressed the team for about 20 minutes prior to the start of practice.

- With respect to Price, Bergevin confirmed that the Canadiens’ No. 31 would be sidelined for another three weeks to one month before being able to return to active duty.
