With the Montreal Canadiens still not knowing when the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs will begin, Michel Therrien decided to simulate a game day for his team on Monday.

"It's almost a week since we last played and this is part of our preparation for the next round," Therrien told the media.

The players participated in a simulated morning skate at 10:30am, their usual practice time on game day, and then headed to the Bell Centre at 5pm with their families to take part in  some activities the team has planned for them, followed by a scrimmage with members of the Hamilton Bulldogs.

"It's good for us to feel the speed of the game again and to get our timing back,” PK Subban said following practice. “It's tough when you've been off for a few days to keep your timing, so it will be good to get in a scrimmage.”

It will be a closed door event with the public and the media not allowed to attend. The Canadiens have the day off on Tuesday and should know by Wednesday the schedule for Round 2.
