The red jerseys were dropping like flies on Saturday night at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens but surprisingly showed almost full training after his victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.
By cons, Brendan Gallagher suffered a concussion Saturday, but Michel Therrien was reassuring.
The Canadiens coach insisted that Gallagher “already feels much better” a dozen hours after the shock he cashed courtesy of defenseman Luke Schenn of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Therrien said they would respect the protocol of the NHL and the rookie winger will not return to the game until it is fully recovered.
“We never courrons risk to the health of a player at risk. Ever, he emphasized three times rather than once. When he comes back in training, it will be correct. Rely on me. ‘
Under the new protocol, a player suffers a concussion does not have to submit to a required period of seven days. In medical history Gallagher, we have identified a concussion in junior.
Repeating that Gallagher had gotten better, the coach did not rule out the possibility that he returns to play on Tuesday in New York. In the meantime, the “offender” will replace Ryan White in training, ending a four-game second purgatory for him.
Regarding the brutality of the act of Schenn, Therrien has weighed every word.
“This is the league that makes the decisions. For me, I honestly hope that all bodychecks like this are reviewed. After that, the league must make the best decisions required in relation to the blows to the head. I have nothing else to add … ‘
Pacio, quite possibly
The Canadiens coach has spent the majority of the press conference to take stock of health of players.
The winger Max Pacioretty was injured ribs towards the end of Saturday’s game, but he should be at his post against the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday.
He feared the worst after falling on the tip of a shoe of a rival during a push net. He went to the hospital to undergo tests and we had him a few stitches.
Sunday, the American told not feeling too well after the workout, and added that he would play Monday morning. Therrien, he said he believes he will be training.
“The indestructible Pacio” defied all logic lately, making a comeback just eight days after undergoing an appendectomy.
Alexei Emelin and Colby Armstrong, who also had to receive medical treatment on Saturday night, attended the convocation Morning coach Michel Therrien.
Absent Saturday because of a virus, goaltender Carey Price takes better to the point where it can act as a substitute for Peter Budaj Monday. The team also returned to Robert Mayer Hamilton Bulldogs. It will be a second straight start for the CH 2 goalie.
Defenseman PK Subban was missing in training on Sunday. He was sent home because he had a sore throat.
Monday morning we’ll see if his health deteriorated, or will it be able to play.
After receiving the visiting Hurricanes (Private Jeff Skinner), Monday, the Canadiens will travel to face the New York Rangers on Tuesday. It will complete the week by hosting the New York Islanders on Thursday and the Rangers on Saturday.
The team trained in a good mood, after the 4-1 victory over the Flyers, his third consecutive win. Players engaged in a friendly game called “baseball-hockey” which is for the attackers, grouped near the goal, to defeat the guardian before a member of the opposing team “key stone” at the end of a race around the area.
The team’s captain Brian Gionta formed, among other got the better deal than Tomas Plekanec, thanks to the skating coach defenders Jean-Jacques Daigneault.
“The atmosphere is good within the group and we must maintain, summarized Therrien. It was the perfect time to have fun and make sure we stay on our beautiful swing. It was a little game, and the players seemed to enjoy. ‘
