“We can smell blood. We can taste blood. And it’s time to put them away.”

Afterwards, Coach MacLean updated a couple of player’s statuses.  First, Jason Spezza is skating but “it’s gone beyond public skating. He’s into the next stage of his rehab.” Also, Mike Hoffman is close to being available to play.

As for the Canadiens, the team announced that Brian Gionta will undergo surgery on Friday for a torn left bicep and is out for the season.  The Habs’ captain tore his right bicep last season.

Also, just 6 days after “the hit,” Lars Eller skated on his own this morning.

“We can beat these guys. We’re better.”

They’ll have to do without Brian Gionta, Ryan White & Brandon Prust as all 3 are out for tomorrow.  Carey Price is day-to-day with a lower body injury.
