“It’s never fun when you’re on the press bridge watching the games. I couldn’t wait to get back to the game,” Savard said a few hours before the clash against the Predators. I want to regain my synchronicity fairly quickly. »

Savard has missed his team’s last 23 games. Number 58 was injured while blocking a powerful shot from Tage Thompson in the fifth game of the season in Buffalo.

“I’m not going to change,” he said when asked if he was more afraid of blocking shots. The doctors told me there was no problem. I have recovered from my fracture and now have a little more protection (from his glove) should I ever shoot in the same spot. »

Gustav Lindström will miss his move to make room for Savard.
