Andrei Markov has declared himself ready for game action and could be in the lineup as early as tomorrow night against the Islanders. After the recent stretch of injuries and play, there could not have been better news for Habs fans today following practice at Brossard. To me this is like landing an amazing new player in a trade. Obviously he’ll need to shake off the rust early – but this is what we have been waiting for since the first game of the season. Congrats to Andrei for fighting through this injury and for getting himself into incredible shape during his time off.
