BROSSARD - The Canadiens held pratice at the Bell Sports Complex on Monday morning, following a 4-2 win against the New York Islanders the previous night.
Among those absent were Alexei Emelin, who is following up with his doctor regarding the status of his knee, Travis Moen, who has the flu, and Douglas Murray, who took a therapy day.
Emelin will probably make his long-awaited return to the lineup later this week, while Daniel Briere could be back as soon as Tuesday against Tampa Bay.
Carey Price will get his sixteenth start of the season at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night.
