All seven members of the locked-out Canadiens currently in Europe are now off for ten days as the leagues take their rraditional ten day December break. Tomas Plekanec notched another assist in a losing effort against Sparta Prague on Sunday.
Andrei Markov played his second game for Chekhov in the KHL Sunday. He was held off the scoresheet as his team edged Donbass 2-1. The game was played in the Eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk.
