To Play the Games is Good, To Win is Better, But to Love the Game, is Best of All

The Banged up Habs were ousted in Five Games in the First Round, of the playoffs,

by the Bigger, more physical Ottawa Senators. Expect another spirited Game, Go...Habs...Go.

- The team wrapped up the practice session with a round of shootouts. Assistant coach Gerand Gallant beat both Budaj and Price on back-to-back shots, to the delight of everyone on the ice...except the two goaltenders.

Lines at Practice

Pacioretty – Desharnais – Briere
Bourque – Plekanec – Gionta
Galchenyuk – Eller - Gallagher
Bournival - Moen – White
Parros – Holland – Blunden

Gorges – Subban

Head coach Michel Therrien plans to have captain Brian Gionta in the lineup on Thursday when the Montreal Canadiens host the Ottawa Senators at the Bell Centre for their final preseason game.

Gionta, who's recovering from surgery on his left bicep and will not play on Wednesday in Ottawa in the first of back-to-back games, skated on a regular line on Tuesday morning with Tomas Plekanec and Rene Bourque.

Therrien added that winger George Parros, who had offseason rotator cuff surgery, will not be playing in either of the team's last two preseason games.

Forward Brandon Prust was absent at practice on Tuesday, taking a therapy day after Montreal's 3-2 win over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night. Forwards Gabriel Dumont, Nick Tarnasky and Martin St. Pierre, along with blueliners Greg Pateryn and Magnus Nygren did not practice on Tuesday morning, while Nathan Beaulieu, Darren Dietz, Michael Blunden and Patrick Holland did take part on the main pad of ice.

- The Canadiens skated in Brossard on Wednesday morning right before taking the team bus to Ottawa.

- Prospect Magnus Nygren ringed a snap shot off the facemask of Peter Budaj early in the practice. Nygren quickly apologized to the veteran netminder and there was no harm done.

- Players who will sit out Wednesday night’s game against the Senators did not participate in practice on the main rink. Andrei Markov, Tomas Plekanec, Brian Gionta, Rene Bourque, Francis Bouillon, P.K. Subban, Josh Gorges,David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and Daniel Briere worked on one-on-one drills on the other surface.

- Absent with injury were George Parros, Douglas Murray and Davis Drewiske.

Think you're right Kinot.

Apparently, the line up they're going with for Thursday's game is the same line up that will start the season.

So last chance to see the kids in action.

Expected more out of thomas, he seemed nervous and not at ease in the pre-season games. It is a new team for him, think he put a lot of pressure on himself.

McCarron was ok, he obviously needs some more time in the minors, but it was still nice to see our 2013 1st round pick. I don't think he was awful, but he didn't impress either imo.

OT, but Johnathan Bernier is hoping that he will play on Tues. against the Habs.

Just what we need, another French-Canadian goalie playing against us in our barn. :(

from TSN 690:

"Maybe they will give out Canadian Tire money to the fans at the Canadian Tire Center in Ottawa."

Good, Bernier has not shown he's the better goalie than Reimer at this point. I'd rather they are facing Bernier than Reimer, French goalie or no French goalie.
