- The Canadiens skated in Brossard on Saturday morning. Every player except Davis Drewiske and Alexei Emelin were present.
- The players worked on five-on-five zone drills which emphasized passing and puck control, and an intensely physical 2 vs. 2 goalmouth scramble drill.
- At the end of practice, everyone on the ice piled onto Andrei Markov in celebration when the Russian hit a slapshot, on command, 180 feet down the ice and off the opposing crossbar.
- In other news, Ryan White had shed off his trademark blonde locks and appeared at the morning practice with a shaved head.
