CANADIENS (16-6-1) @ SABRES (6-14-2)

After enjoying an extended break, the Canadiens will be back in action on Friday night when they play the first game of a home-and-home against the Buffalo Sabres.

The tilt at the First Niagara Center will mark the start of a busy stretch for Michel Therrien’s troops, who will play six games over the next nine days, the majority of which will be played away from the friendly confines of the Bell Centre. The Canadiens will return home immediately after Friday night’s game to play host to the Sabres on Saturday night, before hitting the road for…

BROSSARD – Eric Tangradi is looking forward to a fresh start in Montreal.

The 25-year-old winger, who was acquired by the Canadiens on October 5 in a trade that sent Peter Budaj and Patrick Holland to the Winnipeg Jets, hit the ice on Wednesday alongside the rest of Michel Therrien’s troops at the Bell Sports Complex after being recalled from the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs on Tuesday evening.
