TSN: Anderi Kostitsyn and Guillaume Latendresse skip Practice, May Miss TO game.


    Anderi Kostitsyn and Guillaume Latendresse skipped practice. Kostitsyn took a therapy day after banging up his R knee Thursday in Philadelphia. Coach Guy Carbonneau would not disclose Latendresse’s injury. Both will try to skate Saturday morning but if one or both cannot play, Carbonneau says Duncan Milroy, Matt D’Agostini and Jonathan Ferland are on standby in Hamilton. Carey Price will make his sixth straight start Saturday against Toronto. He has beaten the Leafs twice in a row and will face them for the first time at the Bell Centre. Crisobal Huet is waiting for medical clearance to return to the lineup, which could come as early as Saturday morning when he sees the team doctor. If cleared, he will back up Price. – TSN

    Press box: Ryder, Brisebois(injured)


    If Michael Ryder remains in the press box and the Canadiens recall Duncan Milroy, Matt D’Agostini or Jonathan Ferland to replace Kostitsyn/Latendresse for the Toronto game then we can safely say that Ryder’s career is over with the Canadiens. I hope that’s not the case because Bob Gainey needs to showcase Ryder and build his trade market value, it won’t happen if he is sitting in the press box.
