Daniel ArouchianSenior Analyst IFebruary 5, 2009

The Montreal Canadiens will be busy the next two days. They practiced this morning at the Brossard facility and boarded a charter flight to face the Buffalo Sabres tonight. They will face the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday at the Bell Centre.

These were the lines during morning practice.

A. Kostitsyn—Plekanec—Kovalev
Higgins—Koivu—D'Agostini
Pacioretty—Lapierre—S. Kostitsyn
Laraque—Bégin—Kostopoulos

Carey Price will be in net in tonight's game.

Patrice Brisebois will not board the flight to Buffalo. He is out with a lower body injury, and hasn't practiced with the team in four days.

Mathieu Dandenault has the green light, but won't play against the Sabres. He may be in the lineup for Saturday's game.
