  • Sergei Gonchar will not suit up against the Detroit Red Wings tonight after taking a dangerous hit from behind by Toronto Maple Leafs tough guy David Clarkson. He's listed as day-to-day. The Canadiens have recalled Greg Pateryn to help fill the void. [TVA]
  • Nathan Beaulieu stepped up and took one for his teammate and teacher, dropping the gloves with Clarkson and earning praise from his teammates. [The Gazette]
  • Subban spoke about his teams victory over the Leafs, while showing off his on-air ability; taking the mic to call some post-game highlights with Scott Oake. [Sportsnet]
  • One strength for the Habs this season has been their ability to bounce back after a tough loss. That will definitely be important with a busy schedule coming up. The Canadiens will play 11 games in 19 days, including eight on the road beginning tonight in Detroit. [La Presse]
