In the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens made a rather worrying announcement regarding the team's first line, namely Nick Suzuki, Cole Caufield, and Juraj Slafkovsky.

Indeed, the three star forwards of the Tricolore will not participate in this morning's practice, as they will be receiving treatments from the medical staff.

"Forwards Cole Caufield, Juraj Slafkovsky, and Nick Suzuki will not participate in today's practice (treatment day)." - Montreal Canadiens

Obviously, it's nothing major, but it's still concerning when you consider that Nick Suzuki will miss a third practice this week. As for Cole Caufield, he will miss a second consecutive practice.


This announcement brings a certain level of concern as some observers think they might be currently bothered by a minor discomfort.

Let's hope that the three forwards will be able to play Wednesday night against the Buffalo Sabres, as they are mainly the only players from the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge to have their names on the scoresheet recently.

It's also worth noting that Nick Suzuki continued his streak of ten consecutive games with at least one point in last night's loss, while Juraj Slafkovsky extended his streak of consecutive games with at least one point to eight.
