BROSSARD, QUEBEC (AP) - By his standards, Jacques Martin’s latest new conference amounted to a stand-up comedy bit.

The Montreal Canadiens’ low-key coach held court at the team’s suburban practice facility Sunday, feeling sufficiently at ease to reveal his usually well-hidden sense of humor.

After all, the Canadiens returned from Boston with a 2-0 lead in their first-round playoff series after beating the Bruins twice at the TD Garden.

Was he thinking of sequestering his team, say in a hotel?

“Are you guys staying in a hotel?” said Martin, punctuating his playful exchange with a wink.
