Montreal Canadiens Arrested

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) _ Police say two Montreal Canadiens players have been arrested outside a Tampa nightclub.

Defenseman Ryan O'Byrne has been accused of stealing a woman's
purse, and right wing Thomas Kostopoulos has been charged with
resisting an officer, a Tampa police report says.

O'Byrne has been charged with felony grand theft. He was released Monday after posting $2,000 bail. Kostopoulos faces a misdemeanor count of resisting an officer without violence and was freed after posting $500 bail.

Spokesman Donald Beauchamp said the team would have no comment
until after Monday's practice.

The Canadiens are scheduled to play the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.
