Canadian attempts to forge an identity very tough team and we have a good idea where it is in its path, Wednesday, on the occasion of the visit of the Boston Bruins.
The importance of the first clash of the season between the rivals, distanced one rating point, comes second in the mind of coach Michel Therrien and players. It is still early in the season.
Therrien said it remains focused on the established and the goal is not to show the face of the NHL that the Canadian is to be taken seriously this season.
Goaltender Carey Price has confessed lip, a victory instil a slight extra dose of confidence in the group, adding in the same breath that “the most important thing is to remain focused on our performance.” Like what message the coach is well understood.
Eller or White?
Therrien, who can bet on a group in excellent health, would not say whether the winger Ryan White is back in training after being left out in the two games of the weekend.
Therrien said that White was no longer in penance for his indiscipline against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.
The return of the team training in Brossard Tuesday, Lars Eller and White have rotated the fourth unit to attack, alternately. Defenders Tomas Kaberle and Yannick Weber were the duo of reservists.
Eller has had two good games this weekend, the first replacing Max Pacioretty, in the trio of David Desharnais, and the second to the fourth position of the center of the trio. He collected his first three points of the season, a goal and two assists in the 6-1 victory against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
