- After suffering a 2-1 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators Tuesday night at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens got right back to work at practice in Brossard Wednesday morning.
- Everyone was accounted for on the ice with the exception of Andrei Markov, who was given a maintenance day and Carey Price, who continues to rehab a lower-body injury.
- There were no changes made to the Canadiens lines at practice, as coach Michel Therrrien kept the formations from Tuesday night’s game against the Senators intact.
- Coach Therrien is not expected to make any lineup changes for Thursday night’s game against the Islanders at the Bell Centre. Mike Condon, who started the Canadiens’ two previous games, is confirmed to start against the Islanders.
Lines at practice:
Max Pacioretty – Tomas Plekanec – Brendan Gallagher
Lars Eller – Alex Galchenyuk – Devante Smith-Pelly
Tomas Fleischmann – David Desharnais – Dale Weise
Brian Flynn – Torrey Mitchell – Paul Byron
