Video: Canadiens Open Practice and Other Links


The Habs held their annual open fan practice this morning at the Bell Centre, with close to 18,00 fans on hand to watch the event.

A couple notable on-ice absentees were Carey Price and Travis Moen. Moen was taking a therapy day, while Price was nursing what is reported to be a cut on his foot. A vinyl shooter tutor took his place opposite Peter Budaj.

In the skills portion, Mathieu Darche, Andrei Kostitsyn and Tomas Kaberle each hit the four targets in six attempts during the Shooting Accuracy competition. Kaberle was the overall winner by accomplishing it the fastest, in 13.8 seconds. Kostitsyn and Darche both did it in 16 seconds

P.K. Subban edged Yannick Weber in the Hardest Shot department, clocking in a 151 km/h to Weber's 147. Weber apparently challenged his fellow defensemen to hop the boards and join the competition.

Lars Eller took home the Fastest Skater title, making a lap of the Bell Centre in 13.3 seconds.

Budaj and Team Red won the 4-on-4 game 7-3 over Team White. The losing goalie didn't have much to say after.
