Plus – Carey Price has a unique strategy for dealing with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in the Qualifying Round, and Claude Julien isn’t sweating the upcoming 8:00 p.m. starts.

Here’s a look at some of the best quotes from Brossard:


Victor Mete on his potential pairing against Pittsburgh:

I would love to play alongside Petey [Jeff Petry], and hopefully I’m able to. I’ve just got to keep working hard here with what we’ve got in camp and get ready for the play-in round.

Ryan Poehling on practicing in the small group:

I think the organization, the coaches, and everyone in this group is doing the best they can to make it feel exactly like practice. We’re doing the same drills, same type of things, there’s just obviously less guys. Every team is going through it, so we’re not the only ones. That’s what you’ve got to look at – the bright side. We’re focusing on that right now.


Ryan Poehling on Max Domi arriving at training camp:

It’s great. He had a lot to figure out, and I think he did. It’s obviously good for this organization to have him here, and I think everyone’s pretty fired up about it.


Carey Price on being in game shape:

To be honest, it doesn’t feel like we stopped playing that long ago. I feel like everybody showed up and was ready to go right from the start. Everyone seemed pretty well-prepared for the possibility of coming back.

Carey Price on ways the Canadiens can shut down Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin during the Qualifying Round:

Well, we could ask them nicely to stay at the hotel for the games. Or we work as a group and take their time and space away.


Carey Price on Max Domi arriving at training camp:

It was really good to see him. He brings a lot of enthusiasm to our locker room and on the ice. He’s a vocal guy and he’s got a unique laugh that everybody loves to hear.


Claude Julien on having Max Domi at training camp:

We’ve added a player with a lot of offensive talent and NHL experience. He’s someone who has been in our Top 3 or 4 point-getters every year. So, when someone like that joins your group, it’s a positive.

Claude Julien on whether he’ll adjust the team’s schedule for 8 p.m. games:

I don’t think guys have to worry about playing at 8:00 p.m., because I don’t think they’ll fall asleep during a game.
