Today marks a week since the Habs played their last hockey game. 

And if you think you're anxious to get going, you should talk to the players.

The team is doing a few things to keep the guys in game shape.

Yesterday, they practised their game-day routine by lacing up for a pre-game skate in Brossard followed by a closed-door game at the Bell Centre with the Hamilton Bulldogs. 

But, that is still nothing close to what they'll face when the series against the Boston Bruins finally starts.
