Practice – November 6

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens

- A day after the Canadiens’ 4-1 home defeat of the New York Islanders, the team held an optional practice at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard Friday morning ahead of Saturday’s clash against the Bruins.

- As the Canadiens, winners of 12 of their first 15 games this season, were given an optional practice, only six players skated on the ice in Brossard including goaltenders Mike Condon and Dustin Tokarski. Joining them for practice were Jarred Tinordi, Alexander Semin, Tomas Plekanec and Tomas Fleischmann. The six skaters practiced drills led by coaches Dan Lacroix and Stephane Waite.

- Players absent from the optional practice are expected to hit the ice for practice Saturday morning, as coach Michel Therrien gave players the option of choosing to attend either one of the two sessions.

- Michel Therrien also confirmed that Mike Condon will face the Bruins on Saturday. The 25-year-old netminder, who still remains undefeated in his NHL career, will make his seventh start of the season. In addition, the Needham, Massachusetts native’s stellar performance has him currently leading the league in goals against average. With regards to goaltender Carey Price, coach Therrien revealed that the team will have more details about his health on Monday.

- Due to a last minute schedule change, the Canadiens morning skate will be held at the Bell Centre and will therefore not be open to the public.

- The St. John’s IceCaps announced on Friday that the team has partnered with RDS to broadcast 12 home games during the 2015-16 season. The first game will air on RDS on Friday, November 13, when the IceCaps welcome the Toronto Marlies to town.
