BROSSARD – On Friday morning, the Canadiens held practice at the Bell Sports Complex.
- Michael Bournival was cleared for full contact and practiced with a regular red jersey. He had been out since February 6 with concussion symptoms. On Friday, Bournival took turn on Ryan White’s line during practice.
- Carey Price took part in the practice alongside Peter Budaj and Dustin Tokarski.
- After working on the powerplay, the players took part in high intensity battle drills in the offensive zone. On one occasion, Alexei Emelin checked Lars Eller to the ground along the boards, drawing cheers from their teammates.
