Markov Makes Early Return

from Canadiens.com,

The holidays are finally here! The Habs’ bags are packed and they’re ready to go, set to take off on Friday for a seven game road stint. Defenseman Andrei Markov will be boarding the flight with his teammates – and not just as a passenger.

On the shelf since the first game of the season with a lacerated tendon in his foot, the veteran blue-liner is poised to make his highly anticipated return this Saturday on Long Island. The original prognosis had Markov slated to come back only at the end of January, but the shifty rearguard will join new D partner Ryan O’Byrne on the Habs’ blue line this week and Marc-Andre Bergeron will move up to forward.
