Both P.K. Subban and Alexei Emelin were allowed to skip practice. Although Lucas Lessio joined the team for the first time. He wore #53. Sven Andrighetto practiced as well.

For those wondering, Lessio has played reasonably well with the IceCaps, scoring three goals and adding six assists in 18 games. He also produced a few highlights along the way.
I'm going to tweet a few gifs from Lucas Lessio's time with the IceCaps. One thing is clear, he can finish. pic.twitter.com/0vLfISHYoX— Marc Dumont (@MarcPDumont) February 1, 2016
Lessio has fantastic speed as well, which tends to create scoring chances when defenders are forced to move quickly. pic.twitter.com/lFxw8tkYCa— Marc Dumont (@MarcPDumont) February 1, 2016
The lines seem to be unchanged, which of course means Alex Galchenyuk is still playing on the wing.
Trois à l'entraînement:— Marc Denis (@MarcDenis_RDS) February 1, 2016
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Weise; Galchenyuk-Plekanec-Gallagher; Fleischmann-Eller-DSP; Andrighetto/Lessio-Mitchell-Flynn
Max Pacioretty is playing alongside David Desharnais and Dale Weise, because of course he is. Things have been going great lately, so why fix anything?
