Rapid Fire
Practice - May 16

- After a well-deserved day off on Thursday, the Canadiens skated at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard in preparation for Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Finals series against the New York Rangers on Saturday afternoon at the Bell Centre.

- Alex Galchenyuk skated alongside his teammates once again on Friday. He took part in drills as a member of the fifth line with George Parros, Travis Moen and Ryan White. After practice, the 20-year-old confirmed that he had been cleared for contact by team doctors.

- Head coach Michel Therrien ran his troops through a fast-paced practice session, focusing a lot of time on breakouts and odd-man rush situations.

- For their part, the Rangers practiced in New York on Friday morning before flying to Montreal for the series-opener on Saturday.
