Well Deserved Rest Day

The Canadiens are off today, and return to action Friday in Philadelphia against the Flyers. It is a reasonable bet that Jaroslv Halak will start again, after a dominating performance against a once hot Vancouver offence, led by Mats "The Sellout" Sundin. 

In injury news, Alex Tanguay may return Friday or Saturday, but it could be another week before he laces up for a game. Francis Bouillon appears gone 2-4 weeks with a leg injury. And there are now whispers that, if the Canadiens get to the second round, Robert Lang will be able to return from a severed achilles tendon.

Today's Rumours
  • Bob McKenzie reported on the TEAM 990 this morning that Vincent Lecavalier "will not be traded this season."
  • McKenzie also noted Chris Pronger "will very likely be traded, but at draft time and not in the next week."
  • Alex Kovalev appears off the block, as per McKenzie and comments by Pierre Mcguire
  • Rumours continue to persist that the Bruins are after either Pronger or Tomas Kaberle
  • Devils send Clemmensen to the minors: TEAM 990
