Rob Schremp is skating with the team for the first time since suffering a back injury in an exhibition game against the Devils this preseason.
Trent Hunter (foot) is also practicing today; Michael Grabner (groin) is not, although it sounds as if his injury is not too severe, judging from this post to his Twitter page yesterday:
"Couple days of rest...got a little banged up in the last game but nothing serious...next game will be fun..back to Canada!"
Grabner will not be making the trip to Montreal, however.
Matt Martin, who was recalled yesterday on an emergency basis, is skating today on a line with Doug Weight and Nino Niederreiter.
