Brosard – Canadians practice on Monday at the Bell Sports Complex.
After training, Defender Joel Edmundson And attacker Jonathan Droin Questions from the media were answered.
They are followed by interim head coach Dominic Ducharm.
Here are some excerpts from virtual press conferences.
Edmundsson on the importance of the game against Ottawa:
“It simply came to our notice then. In the last game we took a step in the right direction. We’re happy with the way we played. Of course we like to score more goals, but we have to continue in this line to get points. Ottawa has played well against us so far this year, so it will be a good challenge, but we are definitely ready. We can’t wait to play. Good to be back in Montreal. “
When Edmundson faced adversity:
“We are a team that is facing adversity right now. Honestly I think it’s a good thing. It’s good to face adversity. I hope it turns out to be a strong team for us. It starts with the big game with Ottawa tomorrow. As long as we learn lessons and improve every day, it’s a good thing in the long run. “
Drouin on the need to find a way to victory against senators:
“It’s important to note that we lost the last two games last week in Ottawa. We want to see our revenge. We do not want to approach this match with too many expectations. However, we have work to do against the senators.”
Droin on Alexander Romanov’s ability:
“The world sometimes forgets that he’s from Russia. It’s not his culture and he does not eat the same things. He has a lot of new things. There’s always been a little adaptation. He’s starting to understand the language better. We really need to give him a chance to adapt. But in the future, I’ll see him with an incredible skating stroke.He is always on the move and he will complete good first passes. You have to be patient with a player like that. But it has enormous potential. “
Ducharm on his feelings after leading his first two games as interim head coach of the Canadians:
“I’m fine. I did not change from the first day when I said I was ready. I like the way the players are receiving. They want to work. I’m happy with our progress. My opinion is that we’re moving in the right direction. The results will come. I’m realized how quickly things can change in the world of hockey .I ‘ve been on the road with the team and I’m coming back as head coach.
Dacharm on the pressure of being head coach in Montreal:
“I know, I know. I’m a Canadian fan. I know the day I was named interim head coach, I had 8 million assistant coaches. This is the right thing to do. It’s a passion. This is one of the reasons why playing in Montreal is so special. It’s a fan’s passion for Canadians. “
