Getting Ready for NY & MTL
4:14 p.m.
No surprises for Julien - but a little praise from Coach
"I think our players are pretty focused," said B's head coach Claude Julien in assessment of Training Camp '09. "They are in pretty good shape and -- knock on wood -- we've stayed pretty well injury free.

"I don't know if there is a guy we didn't expect to do well [that's surprised us]. We talked about Marchand yesterday, who is really having a good camp, and is doing his best to stick [around].

"We'll get to see him again tomorrow, but Max Sauve -- he's got skill. The biggest thing with him is how involved in traffic [he can get]. In New York he did a good job."

The B's latest story of perseverance has caught Julien's eye, as well.

"We're looking at guys like [Jeff] LoVecchio who hadn't played all last year. He's a guy who has a lot of upside," he said.

1:17 p.m.
Tomorrow's lineup:
Arniel, Begin, Boychuk, Fata, Hamill, LoVecchio, Lucic, MacDonald, Morris, Penner, Rask, Ryder, Sauve, Savard, Stuart, Sturm, Thomas, Thornton, Whitfield, Wideman.

More from Wilmo in a bit.
