Paille, however, has not been cleared to play on Wednesday against Montreal. Paille did not participate in battle drills today. Paille practiced on the fourth line.
- Shawn Thornton took a solo skate before practice this morning. It was the first time Thornton was on the ice since suffering a concussion during his fight with John Scott on Thursday. Thornton rode the stationary bike Sunday, according to coach Claude Julien. Thornton is symptom-free. Thornton remains very doubtful for Wednesday’s game.
- David Krejci and Brad Marchand didn’t practice. Krejci is expected to practice tomorrow. Julien did not say the same about Marchand.
