The Canadiens were back in Brossard on Saturday for an early morning skate followed by the second of three scrimmages scheduled at the Bell Sports Complex during the Habs’ main camp.

Newcomer P.A. Parenteau opened the scoring for Team Red just 36 seconds into the opening frame, burying a pass from linemate David Desharnais behind Dustin Tokarski. Another first-year Hab, Manny Malhotra, then doubled Team Red’s lead on a pretty one-timer from Dale Weise to make it 2-0 after the first half.

Team Red goaltender Zachary Fucale was perfect in his first scrimmage of camp, pushing aside all 10 shots that came his way, while Tokarski for his part stopped seven of nine shots during his time on the ice.

A pair of penalty shots got Team White on the board in the second half, as Michael Bournival and Sven Andrighetto both cashed in their breakaway chances on Carey Price, who blocked five of seven shots on the morning. But strong play from the Max Pacioretty line was the difference on Saturday, with Parenteau and Desharnais beating Budaj twice in the final 25 minutes to give Team Red the 4-2 win.

The Canadiens’ final scrimmage in Brossard is set for Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. EST and will also be streamed live at canadiens.com.

The Canadiens hit the ice at the Bell Sports Complex on Friday morning. Players were divided into three separate groups – Team A, B and C.

Team A (Red) and Team B (White) went head-to-head in a scrimmage in front of hundreds of fans in Brossard.

Those in attendance certainly got their money’s worth, even if admission was free. Four goals were scored in the first period. Invitee Drayson Bowman opened the scoring for Team White, before Max Pacioretty tied things up with a goal on Peter Budaj seconds later. Then, Tomas Plekanec lit the lamp for Team White, before Francis Bouillon got on the scoresheet for Team Red. The two teams headed to the dressing room with the score tied 2-2.

Both teams got off to a quick start in the second period when Gabriel Dumont put Team B up 3-2 with a tally on Joey MacDonald. For his part, Dustin Tokarski stood tall in goal for Team B, turning aside multiple scoring opportunities, including a penalty shot attempt from Christian Thomas. Lars Eller got the best of Tokarski later in the period, however, beating the young netminder with a powerful shot from the slot to cap the scoring as the tilt ended 3-3.

The next scrimmage will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. EST. It will be streamed live on canadiens.com.

“I think with all the changes that took place this summer, it’s an excellent decision on the part of the organization [to have four alternate captains]. We’re comfortable with it. It happened in the past back in 2009-10, and it’s a little bit of a similar situation. You shouldn’t really make a big deal out of the fact that there’s no captain. We have a lot of leadership within the group.”- Tomas Plekanec

“I don’t feel any additional pressure. I’ve spent nine years with the organization, and I’m the same guy I was when I arrived here all those years ago, I just have a little bit more experience. Everyone on the team has to show their leadership capabilities if we want to have success. Everyone has to give their best for the team. That’s how I see it.” - Andrei Markov

“At the end of the day, I want to be the best teammate I can be. To be put in a leadership position gives you that opportunity to also be that type of figure in terms of being a mentor. But having a letter on your jersey shouldn’t change your outlook on things. It just means that there’s more of an expectation for you, more responsibility. That holds a player accountable, and makes them better.”- P.K. Subban

“What I saw over the course of my first two seasons in Montreal is young guys pushing to up their roles and take on more. We’ve got a group of four to which I’m adding Carey Price. For myself and Michel, and for the entire team, he’s a leader. With the group of four, Carey Price, and the young guys pressing, I feel like it’ll make for a good transition.” - Marc Bergevin

“I don’t see it as an audition. I see it more as they’re ready to take on more responsibility. We don’t want to put pressure on anyone’s shoulders for no reason. Our young leaders have made big strides over the last two years. We want to make sure that they continue to make those strides.” – Michel Therrien
