RDS is reporting Alex Kovalev will be out three weeks with an elbow injury.
Nothing is said about how the injury occured.
User Stefan_Latulippe on hfboards relays this info:
On my way to the gym, I listened to Pierre Page and Christian Tetrault (Radio-Energie) and it was 5:48am and Page said that he learn from one source that there was a fight in the Habs dressing room Saturday night, after the game, and it led to the players-only meeting.
Another user on hfboards wrote that the other player is Sheldon Souray, but there’s no other source for it yet.
More to come on that I’m sure. Montreal eats this stuff up.
Some reports out of Montreal indicate Sheldon Souray and Alexei Kovalev started the screaming match. It’s not certain if the two were yelling at each other, but these two have a history. You might remember Game 4 of the 2004 first-round series between the Canadiens and the Bruins. Kovalev gave up on the puck when slashed in overtime, Glen Murray picked it up and scored the winner. Boston went up 3-1 in the series. Immediately afterward, Souray ripped Kovalev publicly.
