New York Post (Dan Martin):
Brendan Shanahan (knee) didn’t practice and is day to day. … Renney said the possibility of Martin Straka (concussion) playing tonight was “remote,” and that Sean Avery (bruised hand) is improving, but will be “a little while yet.”
Guy Carbonneau will stay with his winning lineup from the 5-2 triumph over the Bruins. For the most part, the Habs have avoided any major injuries thus far this season and probable have the least number of games lost to injuries in the NHL…….please hockey gods, continue having mercy upon us!!!!!
PRESS BOX: Kostopoulos, Begin (injured)
