It was reported that David Desharnais is heading back to Hamilton. Desharnais played just under 8 minutes against the Penguins, no points and -1.
Hoping that he’ll be back sometime.
And RDS is reporting that Andrei Markov started skating and that there’s a chance that he could be back in the lineup as early as late December.
Imagine if Markov did come back healthy and ready to go by early January… just in time to get in sync for the playoff run….
Gomez, Spacek, D’Agostini and the newly acquired Benoit Pouliot were also skating today.
The game against the Penguins had the Habs down Markov, Gill, Gomez, Spacek, Gionta, D’Agostini and Andrei Kostitsyn…. am I missing a few???
The team played with effort and heart.
Imagine what this team may look like in Januray or February is these guys are back and the team is relatively healthy. I’m optimistic… At the rate of NHL injuries this year though…. there are no guarantees.
