Rapid Fire

- On Friday afternoon, the Canadiens practiced at Islanders Iceworks in Syosset, NY ahead of their Saturday night tilt on Long Island.

- Following Thursday night’s loss against the Flyers, head coach Michel Therrien spent the early part of the on-ice session focusing on even-strength drills. He emphasized intensity and speed for the duration of the workout. The Habs bench boss also put his troops through odd-man rush drills as well at a rather brisk pace.

- Therrien confirmed that Carey Price will get the start in goal against the Islanders on Saturday night. Price holds a 6-2-0-3 record in 11 career games against the Isles, most recently besting Long Island 4-2 back on November 10.
