The Montreal Canadiens are coming off one of their most embarrassing losses of the season - and that's saying a lot. They've been blown out several times and lost in every which way imaginable.
Losing 5-4 may not seem terrible - but when it's to the Arizona Coyotes, a team that hadn't won a single game in regulation in 20 tries this season, you know things are bad.
To make matters worse, Max Pacioretty, Jonathan Drouin, and Jordie Benn did not participate in practice today, all out with the flu.
TSN's John Lu had some ominous news ahead of Saturday night's classic matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Center.
Claude Julien will likely provide an update tomorrow afternoon regarding their statuses - they will all probably be game-time decisions.
Let's hope for a quick recovery... Auston Matthews may be back in Toronto's lineup tomorrow.
