Travis Moen returned to Montreal Canadiens practice on Tuesday and skated with his teammates for the first time since suffering a concussion in a fight three weeks ago.

After practice, head coach Michel Therrien said that Moen will travel with the team to Tampa as the team gets set to play the Lightning in Game 1 on Wednesday night.

Moen skated in a purple no-contact jersey on Tuesday. He was hurt in a fight with Kevan Miller in Boston on March 24.

Therrien also said that Brandon Prust's status for the first game of the series is still unknown and the team will find out on Wednesday if he will be able to play. Prust is recovering from a suspected rib injury and has been out of action since March 19.

The Lightning said on Tuesday that Ben Bishop will not be available for Game 1 and Anders Lindback would get the start in goal.

Bishop is nursing a wrist injury and is listed as day-to-day.
