Canadiens focus on the powerplay during practice

New, comments

The Habs spent time working on their woeful powerplay this morning

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Dallas Stars Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The first news we received this morning was that Carey Price will be facing the Penguins.

The injured players (Andrei Markov, David Desharnais, Brendan Gallagher, and Greg Pateryn) did not take part in practice this morning.

The most interesting aspect that came from the morning skate was the powerplay units. The Habs practiced with four forwards on the first wave, with Alex Galchenyuk playing at the point.

The second powerplay unit had Jeff Petry and Mark Barberio on the back end, which indicates that Nathan Beaulieu may not be playing many minutes with the man-advantage for the time being.
